As many artists and craftspeople learn, sometimes completing a project is driven less by inspiration than by dedication. Rebecca Brown, a teenager in Conrad, understands this lesson on now that she has finished a five-year project to build a cedar canoe.
When Rebecca and her dad, Daniel Brown, visited Lakeside’s annual Big Sky Antique and Classic Boat Show in 2009, she was impressed with the work and quality evident in the cedar canoes on display there.”I was just walking around, and seeing how pretty they all were, you could see the craftsmenship that went into them it was just so cool and inspiring,” Rebecca said last week.
