Picked this up from the framer yesterday. Gift for my wife. Sorry for the terrible pics

We;ve had this for quite a while but thought I'd post it anyway. It's one of my favorite paintings. I love the combination of colors. Obviously very much Folk Art, it was painted by the mother of one of my best friends from HS. It's perfect for the style of our house. Oil on wood panel.

I'm not someone else.

The Amanda Collins painting of Cooper is quite good, and at that price, a steal. Kudos to both you and Amanda.

I just finished building a "barndo" at our farm....Big metal building with garage, workspace, gym, dog room...Barn also has a 3 bedroom guest house "hiding" on the south end of the barn. I installed shiplap on most of the walls and have been having fun filling them with paintings:
