Fine 19th C American Folk Art Painting w/ Sandpaper Frame - Mushroom Rock in Kansas - Americana - Naive - Primitive

This totally charming folk art painting is a document as remarkable as it's subject, and the sandpaper frame, itself a piece of folk art, just puts it over the top. A quirky and appealing piece.

Mushroom Rock State Park in the Smoky Hills region of Kansas is home to this remarkable rock formation which was formed when a harder rock sitting on a softer rock was subjected to the forces of erosion. Fantastic.

The painting looks to be canvas laid on board with hand stitching around it's entire perimeter, and is mounted in it's sandpaper frame by means of cloth tape top and bottom. "Kansas 1875" is written on the back of the painting in pencil, and thin string is sewn to the painting to provide a means of hanging. Altogether a wonderfully homespun concoction.

Condition is as shown, an honest piece of 19th C American folk art. I would leave it exactly as it is, perhaps display it on an easel. Measures 8 1/16" x 10 1/16" overall with an image size of 5 5/16" x 7 5/16".

Sometimes the truth really is stranger than fiction. Weird and wonderful. Enjoy!
