Portals Project: day 7

October 26, 2011

Our first frosty morning was spent cutting hemlock boards in the garage.  Cold! Why do I decide to work on wood projects during cold weather? Why not during the summer? Guess they just never surface during warmer weather… or the garage is too hot during the summer. Picky, picky, picky! 😉

This is the casement that will hold the art work. I’ll also be creating an elevated base to house the transformer & wiring for the lights. The below image was taken prior to sanding.

I’ve also come to the conclusion that working one project a day is probably not the best approach. I’m feeling like time/due dates are pressing in.  Block prints need finishing and editions run. Plus new images need to start. Splitting my day between sculpture & printmaking might be the solution. Here is the start of the new border collie print. Rogue, owned by very good friends Tracie & Sean, is the subject matter. He is laying down with a ball right next to his snout.  Block size is 5.75″ x 5.75″. You’ll be able to read it better in a few days…
