I just got my Hilinski board with painting by Penny Hauffe and have to show it off!



I am simply amazed by the work of Carl and Penny.

I'll bet you are really excited! I own one too, but not a painted piece like yours. Is that you in the painting? If not, any significance to it?

Also, I like how the center hole looks like a knot in the trunk.

Cheers!

Congrats I got mine 2 years ago and love it. I'm not actually a fan of the painted ones I really love the look of natural wood. I only regret that i went for a "regular" board and didn't go for one of the burls, the burls are just gorgeous. Maybe one day I'll be rich and can slurge on a second board.

It's beautiful. I'd have a really hard time playing on it though. Great strategy!

Nope not me in the picture but there is some significance to it. Both my wife and I are huge fans of the Blues and thus this image is to capture that. I have a good friend, Will Whitmore, that plays the blues and his image was actually used by Penny for this painting. Thus the picture not only captures the blues for us but is also an image representing friendship and memories of home as a lot of Will's song are about the area we grew up.
