{ Folk Art }

As many of you know,
I tend to flit between mediums...

One day I'm stitching,
(well, I'm ALWAYS stitching)
the next day, I'm punching, hooking or drawing.

These past few days have been spent lost in my watercolors again...
I love the subtle shades and earthy tones I can achieve with them.
So old looking. so folky...

So, for your amusement,
I've listed one fraktur and one painting on my ebay auction page:
{ http://shop.ebay.com/notforgottenfarmprimitives }
both are contained under glass in my beautiful, early-looking hand-painted frames and
both are listed with reasonable reserves deserving of the work involved in creating them.
( I can divulge the reserve if you're interested ~ email me at not4got@aol.com)
{{I think it's my PA German roots that compel me over-and-over to create these frakturs and paintings..I can imagine my ancestors setting quietly on a cold night, under candle-light~ with quill and brush in hand~ creating colorful,
naive drawings on their bookplates and bible covers!}}
hope you enjoy them!
(p.s. these will not be offered as prints)
Peace & Plenty be yours!

Hi Lori, This angel would make a beautiful rug hooking pattern!!! I'm whipping the edges of your "Ah Spring". I loved hooking it as well as your other patterns. I'm getting one for Xmas. Can't wait to get it. I loved the new ones on Spuce Ridge. As a matter of fact, most of my rugs are yours.
