Main & Foley Going North – My 1000th WordPress Blog Post

“Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.”
– Sir Winston Churchill

Main - Foley North Painting 72 res

Main & Foley Going North – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor

This is another Eufaula painting.  That building with the dome is the Foley Building.   It originally housed State National Bank, now known as The Bank of Eufaula.  This bank is now in the low brick building you see on the lower right area of the painting.  The Sorbe building is the one in the lower left.  It was built in 1895 and is the oldest building in the business district.  Empire Finance is currently operating there.  I am leaving the business names off of these Main Street paintings on purpose.  In my 20.5 years in the sign business, I have changed many of them a number of times.  I’d like to memorialize the buildings themselves, in stead of the businesses.  🙂

This is my 1000th WordPress Post!  Oh my!  Almost every one has a painting, too!  Isn’t that amazing?    Where did all that time go?
