salvage crown art - makes a great headboard!
We absolutely love this head turner! Perfect one of a kind art for your home...we think it makes a great headboard (seen here in the Gypsy Farmhouse).
Handcrafted art by Texas artist Doug Forrest ... crafted out of salvaged wood then gold leafed and painted by hand. Each piece is signed by the artist. Custom orders available... just give us a call!
From the artist: "Modern Folk Art is what i call my work. Folk in the simplicity of technique, modern in the ability to create a wide range of images. The beauty is in the flaws. What's old is now new. The wood in my studio often dictates what the next subject will be. A seasoned knot within a board may stare at me like a stallion while the ruffled patterns in the wood grain beg to take flight as birds of a wooden feather. There is history in each piece, beginning with the stories ingrained in the wood gathered from vintage sources. The reincarnation of the woods as a final artwork brings a personal satisfaction in my contributing in a small way to the preservation of the Americana culture."
