|My school and me|
|My family - Dad, Mom, |
sister Chellie, Me & Brownie
our dog - circa 1958.
|Big brown bear in the woods.|
circa 1958. (my bear art
seemed to have continued
in later years too...ha!)
I also found some old Polaroid photos of art I used to do 35 - 40 years ago. These I called "buck burning" - I used a wood burning tool to burn pictures into deer hides, then stretched them on a frame. I don't think my art work is so spectacular, but back when I used to do these, they were not common, and so they sold pretty good. I used to go to art fairs and art shows with these, and some of my other wood working projects and crafts ... hinged fish, nursery rhyme characters, candlesticks and more.
|Bear in the wood - buck burning, circa 1973 or so.|

of bears too! Circa 1975 - 1978

This was before it was stretched to
a frame. Circa 1976 or so?
