8. Dairy Fresh Sign, Greensboro, AL
This image is one of the first that you see as you arrive to Greensboro, AL on Tuscaloosa Ave. Greensboro is a place, which seems in some ways caught in time. Main street is largely unchanged from the time when the town was in its prime. Greensboro is a town of 2,000, the county seat of Hale County, and the Catfish Capital of Alabama. As a Rural Studio Outreach Student, I spent a year living in an old house at the corner of Centerville and Main Sts., in downtown Greensboro. As I painted this image, it was a pleasure to remember the familiar sites of a small town in West Alabama.
