Some of you that have been here awhile will recognize this design, and to all of you that are new, welcome!
Nearly one year ago I started playing with a scroll saw. I had just started back at painting (after a 10 year break!) and my client commissioned a horse painting for a wedding gift. I remember thinking, hmmmm...I wonder if I can do a painting out of wood?!
My client gave me the green light to try, and I started by drawing up a template. I was timid and not quite sure what the heck would happen. But, I held my breath for nearly 2 hours, cutting out each sliver of wood, ultimately creating one of my favorite designs to date.
This is the fourth time I've created this piece and it still challenges me in such a great way. The next few pieces will be in this puzzle piece style, for a farmhouse series. I've got a rooster next, which I also made nearly a year ago. Then I'm pushing myself to try a barn, cow and an old rusty truck with flowers. I hope you'll enjoy this new series!
