Hand Crafted Signs

Larry Christy

FishCritter

Outsider Artist Tom Breen created Larry's interest in art signs and below is a list of his first signs made. They are made from old weathered wood and both routed, carved and painted with both acrylic and oil paints and some are protected with spar varnish. Larry believes that his crude art is to be used and not hung on the wall for eye candy.


All signs are dated, number from the very beginning and signed FishCritter with a fish symbol.
