Americana

I'm building up my Americana/Patriotic inventory in preparation for the Cost of Freedom Traveling Tribute that will be coming to Moundsville August 22. This will include the traveling Vietnam Wall, which is a scaled down version of the one in Washington DC.

My friend Debbie made the flag, then I attached it to a large piece of checked material by blanket stitching around it. The whole thing was then attached to an old window. A red, white and blue pip berry garland tops it off.

These are barnwood signs I painted a few days ago. I took the picture of them in what I like to call my 'outdoor painting studio'. Several of these have already sold, and I'm working on more.

Americana is always in season!
