There is story that goes with this framed print. You see my father passed away in December of 2007 and my sisters and myself sold the family home. Our parents built this home in 1946 upon my fathers return from World War II, and all of us kids were raised in this home. It carries a lot of great memories for all of us.
The Realtor that we listed the home with had an artist do this water color and 3 others, one for myself and each one of my sisters. So there is the story on the painting. Now the story on the frame. The Walnut that this is made of is from a tree that my Dad’s neighbor had cut down and we had milled and has been air drying for 3 years. The maple is some that my Dad had in his shop that was left over from a project that he had done.
Now the design of the frame was inspired by a fellow lumberjock Rj. http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/RjGall
The frame is of walnut and curly maple and constructed with mortise and tennon joinery and finished with lacquer.
Thank you for looking….
