I originally picked this picture to cut because I thought it was a good picture to enter in a contest here in the FlintHills. However, their criteria was paint, pencil, ink, etc. So I e-mailed to see if my medium would work. They said that yes I could, but I could not use a template or pattern it had to be original, and oh by the way it had to be of a prairie scene. Well, i’m not that good at making my own patterns yet and certainly not fast enough in the time span that the picture needed to be done. I went ahead and did the picture because I liked it.
The picture itself measures, 15”x19” with the frame 21 5/8”x 25 3/4” . The picture is also made of Baltic Birch Let me tell you I have not done a frame that wide before and its a little more difficult than the smaller widths. I did have my difficulties. The frame is made of Catalope (hope I got that spelling right) and edged with Walnut, in the inside and outside. The frame is finished with spray laquer and wax.
The pattern is by Gary Browning, and reading what he wrote about the pattern is comes from a newpaper from Germany.
Thanks for looking and sharing.
