The ArtSparker

I recently got a nice comment from a woman who runs a blog called ArtSpark Theatre. Unfortunately, I cannot figure out how to do the nice dialog thing that she does on her blog so I decided to post this folk art thing I got at the Goodwill for forty-nine cents, in her honor. This piece was made during the late 1960's to early 1970's.

I know this because on the back of this piece of decorated plywood was the name of the artist. I found her through Google and have spoken and written to her a few times. I have never actually met her and I do not know what she looks like. When I look at this piece of folk art it reminds me of stuff I have seen on the ArtSpark Theatre blog, and the ArtSpark woman, Susan Sanford, is what I imagine the artist of this piece would look like. ArtSparker this one is for you.
