Stitch painted by hand on 18 count canvas, overall design 10″ x 8″. Original art by Susan Wallace Barnes. Can be kitted with threads of your choice, just ask.
Design reminds me very much of one remarkable man’s cabin built by hand. Documentary is fascinating. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Proenneke
Richard Louis Proenneke (/ˈprɛnəkiː/; May 4, 1916 – April 20, 2003) was an American self-educated naturalist, conservationist, writer, and wildlife photographer who, when he was about 53, lived alone for nearly thirty years (1969–1999) in the mountains of Alaska in a log cabin that he constructed by hand near the shore of Twin Lakes. Proenneke hunted, fished, raised and gathered his own food, and also had supplies flown in occasionally. He documented his activities in journals and on film, and also recorded valuable meteorological and natural data. The journals and film were later used by others to write books and produce documentaries about his time in the wilderness.
Proenneke bequeathed his cabin to the National Park Service upon his death and it was included in the National Register of Historic Places four years later. The cabin is a popular attraction of Lake Clark National Park.
