Show and Tell Friday .. Duck Head Painting

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday
Hosted by
Kelli at,

Make sure you stop by and see Kelli and
all the other Bloggers posting
their Pretty Goodies today.

Duck Head Painting
Painted by My Mom

This painting is 2 treasures in one for me.
First being the painting itself
the other the frame.

This is just one of many paintings my Mother
painted back in the 80's, and just a sample
of her many many talents. Back in the late
70's she taught art classes out of a small
shop in town and painted any and everything
from milk cans to saw blades.

I have always loved this painting since the
day she painted it and she finally
gave it to me as a gift in 1992.

A big nature fan I totally did all of
my home decor in this theme.

A closer look at the Mallord and his Mate coming in
for a landing.

A resting shotgun
with 3 decoys.

The second part of the treasure..
The Frame.
The frame was handmade by my Grandaddy...
who in his earlier years was an awesome
wood craftsman.
Total size of the painting with frame
30 x 44

Thank You for stopping by to
visit my treasure today...
and a special Thank You to
Kelli for hosting this outreach
for us all.
