This Fellow owns a Gallery and he also does Cutom picture framing.
When looking at his website I saw the he is creatvely utilizing a Shipping Container as his studio.
So I thought something that looked somewhat industial would fit the bill.
I sketched out this barge shaped sign to get his opinion.
Then Came "SANDY" and I thought I had lost him with the storm.
After some delay It appeared that he had safely made it through he storm and wanted to pick this up again.
The storm delay gave him a chance to digest the design I proposed and He warmed up to the Idea.
Here is a screen shot from my monitor of the sign as it would be cut on the router.
The black and white posts above the barge would be fabricated of steel and sandwiched between the front and back of the sign as structural hanging supports.
