Basketmakers

This is a painting that is on the back cover of a book called Legend of the Bushwhacker Basket. It’s a really neat study of a basket making community that was centered in upstate New York, not far from where I live.

Blue Basket

This is the latest basket I’ve made.  It’s one of the bigger ones so far.  It’s about 12 1/2″ in diameter and 16″ high with the handle.  It’s painted with blue milk paint outside and stained around the rim, handle, and interior.
