This is another one of my folkart pictures. I sketch these pictures on a sheet of paper pretty much the same has I would if I were doing a watercolor. Then I cut pieces of wood to the proper size and glue it to a piece of plastic laminate. The cedar post are made from cedar, the pecan tree is really a piece of a pecan tree with redwood shavings from the planer. The mailbox is ipe and so is part of the barn. Gates and round haybales are pine.
I ran out of the proper size guitar strings on the fence, but hey it’s “folkart”. Guess that’s ok, I’ll know if nobody buys it. It’s fun to make anyway.
I made the picture frame too. The pencil drawing is signed, dated and mounted behind the displayed picture. Hope y’all like it and thanks for all the kind comments on the other pictures that I’ve posted.
