I recreated the old traditional sign for the customer, who had purchaced it as a commerical silk screened sign many years ago. The original had been hanging inside their home to protect it from the elements; the masonite on which these signs were printed does not hold up to exterior display. The family wanted a larger, durable sign to actually mount on their barn, and they got it!

When recreating an old, damaged sign, I usually work from a phtograph of the original. As you can see from these two shots, it is challenging work!
