Quaint and one-of-a-kind, this Adirondack-style, hand-crafted wood-slice painting ---- revealing a winter scene of a red covered-bridge and snowy valley --- is signed and dated by the artist on back (Richter, 1955).  ... Both painting and its wood-bark rim are in good condition. ... A small, circular hook is affixed at back, to enable wall-hanging. ... Artwork is roughly 10-inches long and 3-inches wide; tree wedge is 1/2-inch thick. ... This rare and nostalgic example of Adirondack Folk Art offers bucolic charm! ... Free Shipping!

  •  This richly colored artwork is an original “landscape” painting crafted on a plaque made from a slice or wedge of tree trunk, rimmed with its bark intact.  ... This particular scene harkens to the red-covered bridges and hilly terrain for which Vermont is known, although most vintage wood-slice paintings capture country scenes found in the Western states.
    •  The artist, named “Richter,” signed this piece in 1955 (artist’s hand-scripted details appear on back). ...
    • The artwork’s painted surface is remarkably well-preserved, considering its age, and the painting’s colors remain vibrant; the tree-wedge’s bark, which provides a natural frame for the artwork, still retains its original varnish.
