Franklin’s Marvin Stalnaker - Signed Print
Franklin, Tennessee is known for many things. Famous battles were fought during the civil war, beautiful rolling hills, friendly people , festivals, and a renowned artist by the name of Marvin Stalnaker.
We met Marvin when Mom and I use to participate in local craft / art shows ( years ago!).
Marvin was an iconic figure in the Franklin area...not only for his gift of fine art that portrays our local historic homes and buildings , but probably remembered just as much because of his charismatic, loving personality. He knows no stranger. He is an authentic person that remembers everyone and left an impression with us all.
Marvin moved to West Virginia a few years ago...but he left behind some incredible pieces of art for Franklin / Williamson Co. residents to enjoy for years to come.
If you are lucky enough to come across a Marvin Stalnaker print at a garage sale, you are a very fortunate person. Very few people give up their “Marvin prints”.
If you were fortunate enough to have met Marvin and own one of his prints, you can’t but help display his work with great reverence, and experience the essence of the artist through each piece he poured himself into.
Note: This signed print was given to me by our friend Carol, for me to sell in the booth. She is an avid garage sale queen and was fortunate enough to have found this at a sale.
I want to thank her for her loving heart ... she is such an awesome, loyal friend to us.
