Well it’s finally happened! Another one of my favorite local landmarks, the giant ice cream cone at Meredith’s Bread on Route 28 between Woodstock and Kingston is gone. I’m disconsolate! I drive along this route about twice a day and seeing the giant cone always made me smile! I have wanted to paint the local icon for years – and now that it’s gone I’ve committed to making that one of my winter projects.
The giant ice cream cone will live for eternity along with other cherished pieces of our roadside past as a large oil on canvas – one of my collection.
A few moments to mourn the loss.
