A great show in the middle of winter in Wisconsin to get us thinking about spring. My mother and I set up a booth together as Russell’s Farm Market. She is a true artist, painting on canvas, windows, screens, tables, chairs, fence pieces, barn board, cutting boards, and whatever is paintable. I create my welded metal pieces, pulley lights, steampunk lamps, candles, and jewelry. Toss it together with some of the vintage items we sell at our Farm Market, and voila, our booth is born. We both sell our pieces at Russell’s Farm Market from May through October when we are open. Besides that, we have fresh produce grown on the farm, and a huge selection of annual and perennial plants along with our display gardens. We have 2 locations, Plainfield and Wild Rose. Check out our website (Russell’s Farm Market) for more info about the farm! And please come visit. We are open every day from May 1 through mid-October.
Anyway, thank you to everyone who stopped in at our booth to say hi and see what we have been up to this year. Great to see you all!
There have been inquiries at various events about creating a piece out of specific tools and the like. I will always consider doing that if I think it is not beyond my ability. So please feel free to contact me if you have any requests! It’s easiest to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, great to see everyone! I’m starting to line up my shows for 2018 and I will post them when I am accepted!
Here are a few pieces I finished just before the show. Some already have new homes:
