"I could fix that old sign for you"

     We haven't updated this site in a long time.  Our new sign may be one of the reasons we have been too busy to blog .  Painted for us at the end of summer 2013 by Emmanuel Sevilla.  Emmanuel came to us a couple of years ago regarding a framing project.  Getting to know him we discovered he is an incredibly talented graphic artist and sign painter. We had the idea that we wanted to advertise in a way that looked like the signage had been on our building for a very long time. Perhaps it is not what would nave been painted in 1906, but it is an homage to sign paintings from the 1920's and 30's.  Many have said,"we never noticed the sign", or "hasn't that always been there?". That is the way we wanted it to be.
