10. Mr. Boh, Baltimore
This final image in my "sign paintings" series is my favorite. It captures warm light and the familiar image of the Mr. Boh sign, in Baltimore. For those who have never had the pleasure living in Baltimore, Mr. Boh is the mascot of National Bohemian beer. As the Natty Boh website proclaims, "from the land of pleasant living comes National Bohemian, a treasured Baltimore beer since 1885. The Mr. Boh sign still resides in the Brewer's Hill neighborhood of Baltimore. I made this painting on a recent Saturday afternoon and enjoyed experimenting with an evening sky.
