Great Barn Painting

This is probably the best tobacco advertisement painting i've ever seen. I almost went out and bought a pouch of chew because of this.



Arch Springs ~ the stream comes out of this cave.




Snapping turtle i helped cross the road.






Not only is my short-term memory horrible, but so is my short-term memory.

Don't tell fish stories where folks know you especially, don't tell them where they know the fish.

I thought the same thing when i first saw it! Whoever painted it has some talent! I'll post a 100% crop from it in a couple days.

Re: Great Barn Painting

I found out who painted the barn and this is what she emailed me. The artist is Pam Snyder-Etters.

"Thanks for the great compliment! This is probably one of my favorite painting projects I have ever done. What many people do not know is the painting is not solely the red man wording and Indian head/ arrow but actually the entire barn. Brand new boards were purchased to completely reside the old barn so in order to maintain the character I had to stain each individual board. A construction crew hung the boards after which I painted every board again where the seams were in order to create the illusion that the boards were warped and gapped. If you get up close you can see I painted greenish moss and mildew on the wood to make it look truly authentic. On the 2 ends of the barn there are louvers which are painted on since the barn owner did not want the real thing to be installed yet still desired the look. The front was painted last with a 15' diameter circle and Indian head, 46' long arrow with feathers and large 3'X6' Block letters for the "RED MAN" and slightly smaller for the "AMERICA'S BEST CHEW". The painting took me aproximately 3 months to complete from bare wood to finished product."

Not only is my short-term memory horrible, but so is my short-term memory.
