My mother is a wonderful artist. She can paint anything, but her style is very specific to southern art. Some of her best works are old double-handled tree saws. I will be posting pictures here and explaining what the works are, as an archive to memorialize all of her work. She did sale most pieces, so I will post as I get submissions from those who send them. ENJOY!!!
Geraldine’s Childrens’ stools:
Lacey’s stool features Tinkerbell (top). Lauryn’s character was actually based on what she looked like when she was born (hula girl in center). The bottom one is mine. I am an 80’s child, so the original Strawberry Shortcake was featured. I LOVED Strawberry Shortcake, Fraggle Rock, Fluppy Dogs, and Pound Puppies. I STILL have my pound puppy Buster. See how that nostalgia hits you?! That is how these stools are for kids and their parents. The kids get them as presents on their 1st birthday, and they use them for EVERYTHING. Good stuff like brushing teeth and washing hands, to bad stuff like climbing onto furniture and tables to get into anything and everything possible! But oh the memories all of that creates with your little one, and even they will never forget their stool. The one on the right was sent to me by my friend Greg Croom. We went to school together from K5 to graduation, and I haven’t seen him since, but he sent me a picture of his on Facebook. That is just downright cool. And so are mom’s stools.
Here are some more!
BRYCE CANYON SAW
This is my absolute favorite piece. This saw was several feet tall and the picture does not do this work justice at all, but here it is. The Bryce Canyon Saw:
