Betty’s Neck Company

This Buckboard was located in front of a Elliot’s Farm Stand in Lakeville, MA.  A Buckboard is an open, four-wheeled, horse-drawn carriage with seating that is attached to a plank stretching between the front and rear axles. Buckboards were typically used in rural areas from the 18th century until the early 20th century. An interesting subject but also very difficult to sketch and paint. This particular one has signs on the sides from Betty’s Neck Company, which is the original name of a Cranberry growing company founded by my wife’s relatives. Faber- Castell Pitt Art pens with Watercolor in a Stillman and Birn Alpha Sketchbook.
