Who Knew?????

I have been trying to figure out what to get an artist friend of mine for Xmas for some time ( not my Boss , for the records sake ) He has everything, I can't afford the kind of art he would appreciate , and one doesn't want to get him something dumb of course.

Then today , I had my idea. Saw Art. Of Course! He has never set foot in the upper Midwest so he most likely does not even know what saw art IS!!!!

( uh-hem...Saw art is scenes, generally of deer, moose, geese , wolves, snow, cabins ect painted onto Saw Blades, generally the round chainsaw types. This is real. It exists nowhere else that I know of. Many cabins are decorated in Saw Art. )

So I googl'd " Painted Saw Blades " and found many Saw Arts for sale, and thought , well, I'll just pick one out and it will be a Merry Xmas all around.

Then halfway down the list I found it.

Go here

Of Course. Who Knew?????????

Merry Xmas all,
Lorraine

The coffin kitchen got me. Who knew, indeed?

Saw art is common in the middle midwest too, and I can vouch for it still being alive and well as I had a brush with some (literally, as I went up a staircase) today in a tiny little town that has the only store around that sells Victorian microwaves. Quirky wouldn't begin to cover it - but I'm glad weird spots like that exist. Otherwise t'would all be strip malls.

I'm surprised someone hasn't continued the artform with the modern canvas of useless AOL CDs. ;-)

Just don't get him a concrete deer statue, or something like this might happen:

Now that is some wicked saw art and not something I've seen in the saw art of rural Mississippi

Well, goodness me.

The one that really got me was the "blood"-spattered one with the coffins. Glad I was sitting down...

We have saw blade art here in Texas, too. They usually have the ubiquitous bluebonnets on them. The coffin site is pretty cool, but I know I've seen one at least similar to the blood spattered blade somewhere, I just can't remember where.
