Country Hen’s New Look

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope you are all well.

Today, I’d like to share a sweet country hen thrift store find. It looks like an oil on panel painting and was in a very dark brown box-like frame. I became quite fond of the painting and felt it only needed a revised frame to brighten it up. So, I lovingly repainted and crackled it with a red. The original dark brown color underneath tones down the overcoat making it a wonderful country red and gives the original painting a whole new look.

I just love the way it looks so new, yet still retains that aged country charm.

Adding a couple of hooks on the bottom of the frame makes it more functional for hanging potholders, keys, a favorite teacup or two, etc.  The artist signed it “Kasper”. I did some internet research, but couldn’t find much. If anyone knows about this artist and his/her style, please let me know.  I originally re-purposed this to sell, but after it’s new look, I fell for it so much that if someone doesn’t claim it soon, I’ll just have to keep it 😉

Thank you for visiting today, and I hope you enjoyed this post. You can also follow me on Pinterest  Have a wonderful day, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

    Oooo! great job on the frame. The red gives it a warm rich country feel. I love folk art…always have done. What a lucky find.
    Hope all is well. Have a lovely creative week.
