New wood carver/painter at The Gift Shop

We have another new artist here at The Gift Shop!
Donald McColley combines his skills of wood carving and painting into lovely hanging pieces. Donald's creations start from reclaimed barn wood. He carves the wood into frames and creates a "shadow box" and a "canvass" inside the frames. He then paints peaceful rustic scenes on the inside "canvass". You really need to see them in person to get the full effect!

(The letters in parentheses after his name is his code. When you see that code on work in The Gift Shop, you will know he created it.)

Father's Day is coming soon. One of these unique carved paintings could be the perfect gift!
