Hand Painted Saw Blade with little boy fishing

I was asked to paint this saw blade with a child in mind.  The customer wanted a camping scene with a general store and a bunch of names incorporated into the painting.  I wasn't sure how to work all those names into the painting and then one night as lay in bed (which is when most my inspiration hits me...lol) it came to me!  I would paint an old tree and paint the names to look like they were  carved into the tree!  I also put a few of the names on the license plates hanging on the side of the General Store.  The General Store is also named with one of the names along with the name on the canoe!  Whew...I got them all worked in!  I sure hope he likes it!!
