    Hi all,
    I am looking for someone that is creative and mechanically inclined since I am neither to make me a small wooden farm sign that I can hang from a post. I am thinking something around 24" long and about 12" wide. I would like to have one of my chicken breeds I am working with painted onto it along with the farm name.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Just let me know what you are thinking. I am working on another now and would be glad to do yours as well. Actually I was thinking of posting on here to try to get some orders. Great coincidence, LOL.

    Give me details of what you want. I will work up a basic sketch. Of course it will be in pencil and will not represent the finished painting but will give you an idea of what I have in mind. You can then tell me if you want any changes. I have come into some beautiful old red oak barn wood that makes beautiful rustic looking signs. It is quite heavy and you can see all of the old saw mill marks in the wood. I will post some pics of what I am working on now. It's not done but you can see what I am doing and tell me if that is something you would like. I will post some pics in a few minutes.

    This is pictures of what I am working on now. Everything is outlined with a wood burning tool. The details are then hand painted. I can fully burn the name that you want into the wood, or outline burn then stain, or outline burn then paint in the name as with the one I have pictures of now. This is all very time consuming with the outlining and painting. Please keep in mind that this is not the same as a fine oil painting on stretched canvas. The wood is very porous and not smooth and therefore very hard to paint on. I get as much detail in them as possible but they are intended to be slightly rustic looking. I can also do mailboxes, candles, old sap buckets for planting in, etc. Pretty much anything that can be painted on I can do. Also the board can be left as is or a frame can be put around it. Keep in mind that does make for a heavier shipping weight. For the board shown in the pictures the price is $65.00. That includes two 6 inch images and the wording. Something such as a house would be around $100.00 or so. The background of a farm and paintings of chickens in the foreground would be beautiful. If you want larger images, not a problem.
