(painting) table-to-farm

More of the signs I've been painting for Fishkill Farms. See strawberries, a sweet memory now- but fortunately the farm produces an abundance of fruit throughout the summer, and I believe the idea is that the signs, once installed, will help guide wandering u-pickers to the correct fields. It's a lovely place to wander.
I have yet to find a perfectly clear exterior polyurethane varnish; it always yellows, and I wonder if it's inevitable. In this case at least, the antiqued look is okay. I do like using the oil-based One-Shot, it creates an easy precision with the lettering, while practically dictating my brushstrokes with its shiny, tacky stickiness when I paint the fruit.
