Mixed Media on 16x20x1.5 Cradled Wood
This is another mixed media piece from my thrift and antique store rummaging. The images and text were taken from the June 1946 issue of a magazine called “Hunting and Fishing.”
I have developed a fascination for researching who owned the books and publications that I use. This one proved another interesting story.
It is addressed to Richard K. Wood of Chattanooga. Turns out he was well-known outdoorsman and photographer, had a book written about him, and even had a photo credit in the magazine. While researching him I saw a discussion about him on the Facebook page, Picnooga, which is dedicated to vintage Chattanooga photos and history.
