My two Uncles are both very talented, and I am so blessed to have a beautiful original painting from each of them.
(Sorry about the blurry photo. I hate my current camera, which I've started calling Beelzebub. I also had to angle the shot so that the glare wouldn't obscure the photo.)
I really love how it captures a typical Midwest winter scene. This is especially true as there are no people in the scene, and in my mind, no one sane is outside during our Frigid Midwestern winters.
Handyman made the frame from some old barn wood, which compliments the painting perfectly.
This second painting is very recent and a gift from my Uncle Paul.
He made it while on Saba and convalescing from a broken leg. While I'm very sorry for his leg, I am NOT sorry for the wonderful things he made while recovering!
As someone who makes a lot of handmade things, I treasure the handmade gifts from others, and these two paintings are top of the list!
