A TIE FOR FIRST!
Although I have a casting vote I've decided not to use it. I like both
these signs in their own right. So I'm awarding them both SOTM
#4 Robert Kaschak of the Artisian Sign Company
Rob's description: It is HDU. Letters are carved,
guilded and mounted on stainless steel pegs. Background is coarse white
smalts. The net is real fishing net, epoxy and guilded. Secondary copy
is Sign Gold. All paint is latex.
AND THE OTHER WINNER:
#7 Barry Branscum , Clinton AR.
Barry didn't send a description as this was one of
several he submitted. All nice, but not as good as this one.
THIRD: and not that far behind either ...#5 The "Evergreen Grandpa" Dan
Sawatsky of course. Recognize his work anywhere.
