Couldn't help but notice the lower pic's flag on the left is the Icelandic flag. Wife's grandparents immigrated from Iceland to Elfros in SE Saskatchewan. It was/is? a significant Icelandic community. Wife's mom grew up learning Icelandic there and she still has cousins in the area (and Iceland). I wonder how close that abandoned farm house was to her mom's home town.That prompted me to drag out my "folk art". These are right in front of me as I speak.
The top piece was done by my wife's grandfather in a small town in Saskatchewan and we picked it up when her father moved to a condo.
The bottom piece I found in the 70's in a pile of trash at an abandoned farmhouse outside a small town in Saskatchewan.
Life gets strangely connected sometimes.

Other flag is Norwegian. Probably some mixed marriage happening.
Would be cool to know the history of the picture and of its former owners.
I do like it.
