This is a bit smaller than the larger U.S. flags I've been doing. I wanted to try the Betsy Ross flag...

It's 10-1/8" H x 19-1/4" wide. Cut, assembled, painted and weathered by me. I bought an 8-foot 1x4 board of faux barn wood (gray, textured, etc.) at Home Depot and dry brushed, sanded and did a sepia acrylic wash to knock back the stark, bright white. I think it looks pretty nice.

NOTE: No retouching on the first pic...the sun was on the other side of the roof, up to my right. When I took the pic, those rays/halos (lens flares?) were in the original shot. Part of my body (and the iPhone) were in the shade, the back/right side of me was in blazing sunlight. Not planned, just happened.
