Mail Pouch Barns

I had to drive the 3 hours to Pikeville yesterday for an Architectural Photography job. I am ALWAYS on the lookout for barns to shoot. Found not one but two Mail Pouch barns in Floyd County.

This print is of the 100 year old barn talked about in the KET story. I have very limited quantity of this mounted in one of a kind, hand made frames from wormy chestnut. An 18X24 is only $350 and an 11X14 $175.

Kentucky Crafted, The Market…Behind the scene

Kentucky Crafted Market is this weekend!!!

Many of you may know that to be juried into the Kentucky Crafted program is not an easy task. It took me three tries to finally be accepted. When I first heard of the program in 2011, it was already to late to apply, so I served as a volunteer that year. In 2012 there were 2 chances to be juried in and I failed both times.  In 2013 I finally made it, and here it is, just days from being a reality.

There have been endless decisions to make on booth size, and design. You really have no idea what is involved, until you start rolling up your sleeves and digging in. I will be picking up a rental truck this afternoon and begin loading up all my booth components. Fear and excitement bundled into one. Thursday is the big moving in day and when the work is done, hopefully it will be amazing. I can’t wait to see how my new canvas prints will look hanging in the booth. I hope my new winter scenes don’t make people run out screaming “Nooooooo!!!” And I am thrilled the way the sales desk has turned out. I used reclaimed barn wood to make it with.

Well, I hope to see you there this weekend!
