This idyllic farm scene was created using Poplar, Blue Pine, Yellowheart, Aromatic Red Cedar. Spalted Hackberry, Hard Maple, Butternut, Ebony, and Redheart. The frame is White Oak. This was a commission order for a friend who used to farm in Southwestern Minnesota and now is retired in Arizona.

your work is always beautiful, you certainly have developed your talent and this certain one reminds me of my younger days in northern michigan…the beautiful old re barns, so many were empty and unused when i saw them..that was in the 60’s..those were the days..
