Winnipeg in the North End had a lot of corner grocery stores when I was growing up. A lot of these stores had large hand painted 7-UP advertising murals on them. Now a lot of these corner stores have disappeared and/or the murals have long ago been painted over.
I was really missing them lately and I’ve always loved that late 60’s early 70’s graphic art style popularized by Peter Max. Missing them so much so, that I painted one on the side of my garage.
