Fire Department Painting Station #72-Noblesville, Indiana

Station 72-Noblesville

The foundation for this painting is from the Fire Department equipment housed at Fire Station 72 in Noblesville, Indiana. The painting was created as a High School graduation present for my son, John, who was in training to go into the Fire Service.

The Inspiration

This painting is my labor of love, for the painting took months to complete due to the detail involved. I would think of my son, as I diligently worked on the details, while he was volunteering at the various Fire Departments. After I completed the painting, several of my professors at Herron School of Art urged me to make a print edition of the painting. The prints were sold at the World Police and Fire games, and many local Fire Departments, during the summer of 2001.

Shows

The original painting was on exhibit in a Juried Show, at IUK, during the fall of 2001. While the painting was on exhibit, my son John was participating in a 9/11 fund-raiser, by running to New York City, with local area Firefighters. During the fall of 2001, proceeds of the print sales were donated the New York City Firefighter Relief Fund.

9/11 Support

During the spring and summer of 2002, the Hamilton County Fire Department Firefighters in Noblesville, Fishers, Westfield Washington Township, and Jackson Township signed a total of 77 prints. We mailed the prints to the 77 Fire Departments and Fire Stations in New York City, who lost a Firefighter during the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
This acrylic painting measures 18” x 24”, on canvas. The painting was completed during the spring of 2001.
