VINTAGE LAWN CHAIRS WITH A "FACE LIFT"!
The two chairs above are Russel Wright chairs. My youngest son and his wife are Auburn fans, and since Clay loved these chairs, I custom painted them for him and Tonya as Birthday presents. I am sure I brought the value down on the chairs when I painted them, but they loved them, so that makes them priceless!
These are old tractor seats on iron bases, with a vintage milk can serving as a table. Just right for the annual Georgia/Florida Cocktail Party!

This was a custom order for a die hard fan. I am pleased to say that he was very happy with the work that we did for him.
Janet did this one for someone who is a fan of the Game Cocks. This was a very hard piece, due to the detail work of the artwork.
When I can find the antique tractor seat and milk can, I will make an "Aubie", just to have ready. I know as soon as I take it to a show, it will go home with a new owner. Most of the time they will order at least 1 more.
This is my version of the famous bulldog.
This was another part of the custom order that went to Gainesville, Georgia. It was 2 weeks before Christmas, and Boy!, did we ever have a good Christmas that year!
The cabin scene was a custom order and the Falcons was just because we are Falcons fans.
I had a show at the Tallahassee Fair Grounds, which is just a few blocks from FSU. Those folks are Seminole Crazy down there!
For most of my working life I was a Police Officer in a rural town in West Central Georgia. When I say rural, I mean there was only ONE traffic light IN THE ENTIRE COUNTY! Now that is rural. I have posted many interesting and TRUE stories that have happened to me, or crossed my path.
