History of a Painting - Fireman's Set of 4

History of a Painting - Fireman's Set of 4.

Over the years, I painted many different subjects.  one of them fireman related.  It was probably one of the most requested subjects.  The set of 4 became popular as I grouped the painting prints together in a frame.  The fireman's set was one of my first in a series. There were 5 paintings to choose from, 2 being fire stations.  The Miami, Florida and Cassopolis, Michigan stations were usually chosen in sets separately.  The other prints were the Fire Dog, Hose Reel and the Fire Truck.

We assembled their sets while they waited at the Art Festivals and Shows with a choice of frame and mat colors, as well as a horizontal or vertical frame.

Giving buyers a choice of photos and frames is a great idea.

Wow Larry,  I think your pictures are so great, I would think that some restaurant would display them and let you sell them there.

This was always a popular set of prints, and the buyers loved the ability to choose custom framing options on the spot.  Our ability to do that made us a popular booth.
