Folkways Creations

As an artist I appreciate most types of art. Today’s topic is Folk Art. Primative or Folk Art may not be appreciated by some people but I can tell you it is not always as easy to do as it may appear. Created in a different time, materials were hard to come by, canvas almost non existant, so most things were painted on either tin or wood. The simplicity of the art existed even in their paint which in most cases they also made.

As the music of the Appalachian mountains, there was self-created from life itself. There were no photos to work from, it came to them to represent who they were. Below is a sample of Folk Art that I just painted.

Garden Angel

As you can see, this Garden Angel is simple in appearance but represents the Folk Art style. I chose here because I am learning to garden and I am a spiritual person. In her hands is a nest of eggs and she shows off her flowers at the bottom of her dress.

Hopefully, I will be able to work in a little more Folk Art for you. Thanks for visiting.

I love art, especially photography and painting. My next addition is crafts or primarily needlecrafts. And as if that was not enough, I am a genealogist.
