Boot Country as it looks now

It seems like nearly everything I paint or take a picture of gets changed or removed or destroyed. Like the Boot Country shop on Broadway in downtown Nashville: they’ve completely changed their signage so it looks nothing like it did before. It seems that so many places are ditching the old signs for new ones with far less personality. C’est la vie.

Here’s how it used to look, a few years ago: Boot Country - 24” x 36” - oil on canvas - Brad Blackman, 2007

I guess it looks a little bit nicer now, but it doesn’t have the charm it used to. Call me old and cranky.

    I think I prefer the older look!
