This is an excerpt from a travel journal page, and I'm sure it took me longer to execute than 20 minutes. However, I thought it does such a good job of explaining some of the details that make handcrafted furniture so unique. Granted, John Townsend is the cream of the crop of early American furniture, and my paintings barely do his work justice. But I take delight in knowing that there are still such master artisans and craftspeople out there, creating such awe-inspiring work. I am continually inspired by them!
