Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

Primitive oil on canvas of a fisherman

I'm thinking that someone in the 1850's saw a print -  such as those by Currier or Kellogg  - and tried their hand at painting a copy.

It's primitive and the corners need fixed but you can see the grain painting on the frame. A theme such as fishing is always a winner.  It measures 30" by 22" so it's large enough to make a good showing.
