This is the fifth letter painting in the Detroit Alphabet series. It is from the Vinsetta Garage sign on Woodward Ave.
I would like to do a painting of all the letters based on vintage sign-age in Detroit. When the complete Detroit Alphabet is done I would like to make a book from the series, that would be available for purchase from this blog.

G for great is just what I was thinking too.
I've said it before, but I love these old sign letters.
