Altered Canvas for Freakwerx Swap

The challenge was to obtain a thrift store canvas and alter it for a swap in Freakwerx. This is a print on canvas by Harvey Dunn who painted scenes from South Dakota and the plains. It hung on our wall for a number of years and was looking rather sad and faded. We saw prairie dogs and gophers devastate fields the year we lived in South Dakota and some ranchers/farmers referred to them as "killer prairie dogs". The title of the painting is "Bringing Home Supper" The quote by Earnest Hemingway seemed to fit. It was a fun piece to do.

I should be working today but am taking a day of PTO to do some decluttering around the house/closets/garage/basement. The garbage people delivered a big trailer yesterday so I am going to get started on filling it this afternoon. I think it needs to be 3 Xs the size to accomodate all our junk! Motto of the next week...NO MERCY!!

LIFE IS GOOD!
