A Painting - Dog 'n Mug, "Before and After"
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 about it.

I have been asked on occasion how I was able to create my paintings. This series shows the actual place and the final painting to show the comparison. Most of the paintings were made from, as many as 12 photographs taken from different angles, as well as closeup shots. These are the before and after shots.
