mishawaka: A Painting - Dog 'n Mug, "Before and After" Mishawaka, IN - 12/10/16 06:16 PM
A Painting - Dog 'n Mug, "Before and After"
Mishawaka, Indiana.   
As an artist, I am always looking at things differently than most. I have painted several nostalgic businesses around the country.  This painting is a combination of two photos. The building, Dog 'n Mug, once a well known Root Beer car hop drive-in, closed and eventually became Dog 'n Mug. It was in operation for a few years, was sold and is no longer an eating establishment.
This painting was commissioned by the owners when they first opened and requested some changes to the painting, from the photograph.  Check out the link below to read … (20 comments)

History of a Painting - Fire Hose Reel.
 
Acrylic Painting by Larry Johnston©
Fire Station #2 in Mishawaka, Indiana is located in North Main Street.  The antique Fire Hose Reel is on display just outside for everyone to see.  I painted the hose reel and the print of it is included in my Fireman's set of 4 fireman related prints.
The painting was a 9 x 12 and was painted with acrylic paint on stretched canvas.  The original painting was sold shortly after it was finished, a number of years ago.

History of a Painting -
Bonnie Doon,
Mishawaka, Indiana
While traveling around the country exhibiting at Art Shows and Festivals, several were close to home, so I painted some local places.  Bonnie Doon was one of those places. The family-owned business covered South Bend and Mishawaka, with 5 locations. 
Acrylic Painting by Larry Johnston©
This location was on Lincolnway, in Mishawaka.  It is the only location still operating, but is no longer within the family. Bonnie Doon ice cream is still popular.  The plant is located in Elkhart and can be purchased at retail outlets in the area.
