Here it is, my wooden fence post is complete, I did finish it the day I said I would, but haven't had the chance to post anything about it lately, been working some crazy hours, not complaining, I love my job (merchandising), I do get to drive all over some beautiful country and this spring, the wildflowers were gorgeous, I stopped more than once to grab a photo of a flower, fence post or sunset.
Here is the finished painting, I added the rusty wire and tweaked it here and there. This picture is now some 500 miles east of here in my mother-in-law's house, she plans on framing it and hanging it on the wall, quite a compliment, she is a wonderful artist in her own right.
Sorry for the copyright stuff, but unfortunately there are those few unscrupulous folk who take advantage....
I'm sure I'll be doing this painting again, it's turning into an old friend :) I will most likely omit the branches that hang down in the upper right, they are in the original photo, but I just don't like how they look in the painting. I am happier with how the wood post turned out, and the pine tree on the left, it looks more like the tree in the original photo.
