Building a Snowman Painting on Antique Hand Saw
Materials: Surface: Metal
Width: 29 inches
Height: 6.5 inches
A little girl adds the final touches to her snowman near an old farmhouse. This winter countryside scene is painted on an antique Warranted Superior sawblade. It's about 6.5 inches at the tallest point of the saw and about 29 inches from edge of the handle to tip. The saw handle is left natural with only a clear coat over the patina, showing off the beautiful original leaf work carved into the wood.
I found the rusty saw hanging on the wall, along with several others in the "red shed" here at Cordes Farm- it used to serve as a poultry barn for the folks that owned the property in the 1960's-70's. (The shed is in the pictures) I also included the original artist's concept sketch in the photos.
The saw was scrubbed clean, pre-sealed with a white rust inhibitor primer, then I painted the countryside scene in acrylic. It's finished off with several coats of crystal clear, non-yellowing top coat to protect the painting. While sealed and water-resistant, I would still recommend keeping this indoors, out of direct sunlight, in a climate controlled setting to preserve the life of the painting.
The colors are cool soothing hues with touches of red here and there. I added a little sparkle in places to the snow! It would make a great Christmas or holiday gift. The little girl is modeled after a photo I took of my daughter working on a snowman as big as she was when she was only two.
All of my saw blades all hand painted, each one is original and unique, artwork is by BeLinda Cordes from BelleOfDirt.com.

This painting on saw blade is absolutely beautiful!!!
So happy with this ornament! Absolutely adorable. Can’t wait to put it on my tree.
Thank you so much!
I got this because I heard dead nettle helped with arthritis. I don't know if it helps yet because I haven't used it long enough, but I loved the fact that the salve didn't have any scent and it feels nice.
