I enjoy antiques, especially primitive wooden items. There is something very compelling when wood weathers. It evokes thoughts of survival, seasons, textures. It makes me think of things once valued and now forgotten. Alan must appreciate such things too based on the canvas he asked us to make for him of this photo of a meter on an old house in Maine scheduled to be demolished. He said: “This shot is my favorite as it evokes the feeling of an Andrew Wyeth painting of a weather-worn Maine structure.” I appreciate the image and Alan’s choice to have this art piece framed rather than gallery-wrapped. He took advantage of one of our promotions and was, in the end, quite pleased. “It exceeded my expectations. I will be back again and again.” I especially love that flash of green you captured, Alan!
Julie is another customer who obviously appreciates the weathered look. So much, in fact, that she had this image made into both her Christmas cards and a canvas! “This was our family Christmas card. My husband and I are in front of the barn, and my kids and daughter-in-law are in the loft. I’m thrilled with the results!” This canvas speaks to me about the agelessness of family. Thanks for sharing it with us, Julie.
So if you have something weathered and rustic, but you want to assure it is never forgotten, capture it on canvas. Better yet, capture it twice and give one away! Mom
