my latest pallet project

i have confiscated the texas pallet map that i made for suzanne a few years ago. it hangs over my fireplace.

i made her a new map with the pallet she used in her wedding. she had pictures of the bridal party in all different frames on it. and of course i didn't take a picture of it! hopefully the photographer or someone did. well, i decided to make her & justin a special map. i think it turned out perfect!

the guy across the street saw me making it in my garage/driveway & he has ordered a Louisiana map! he said i should make a bunch of maps & sell them.

whatcha all think?

this is both maps.....

this is a close up of suzanne & justin's....

and these are some "closer ups"!....

flatbroke ranch has a cow!!!!!!

yes! flatbroke ranch is the proud new owner of a COW!!!!

my friend doris called me monday & asked if i could stop by her house on my way home from work - she wanted to show me something. when i got there, she handed me this:

I WAS SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! she painted it just for me!!!!!!

i hung her in my craftroom. right now she's still nameless. can't really call her sam elliott, but i was thinking maybe "samantha"? she looks a little sad - like she got caught in the paint & is afraid i'm gonna yell at her!!!???!!!!

but i LOVE her & i LOVE doris!!!! she's the lady who painted my truck & tractor. now all i need's a barn!!!! i'm on the lookout for one for her to paint!!!!
