This drawing ~Saved~ their Homestead. 


Talking with Mr. & Mrs. Wilkins we setup a time to meet and discuss this "project" he had for me. Upon arrival, I was greeted with smiles, excitement, and tons of old photos. For an hour we poured over those photos. Mr. Wilkins explained to me that each of them showed buildings that existed on the farm he grew up on. From the tobacco barn, to the corncrib, he had photos of each of the individual place, but not a single photo of the entire homestead. Since none of them were standing anymore, the homestead only existed completely in his memory. 

His "project" for me, was to create that complete image he had in his memory. After many hours of planning and talking I finally finished the drawing of "Their Homestead." We met again for delivery, and his reaction when he saw the completed artwork was one of my favorites. He had it in his hands, silent and staring at it, then said with a sigh of relief "It's exactly how I remember it." We had saved the Homestead he grew up on.

  • When will you send my order?

    The next 1-2 business days, and you recieve tracking information once the package is on the way!

    How will you package my order? 

    Small prints : Will  be sent in card backed envelopes and wrapped in tissue or newsprint. 

    Medium & Large Prints:  Will be wrapped in tissue or newsprint and rolled into cardboard tubes. If you’ve ordered multiple prints I will wrap them all together. 

    ** I don’t send larger prints in flat packages as theres much more likelihood of damage when sent flat. 

    (I recommend removing your prints from the tube as soon as you receive them, to allow them time to uncurl. It can help to place them flat under a heavy book!)
