Seemingly Slow

At the end of the week, I don’t know what happened, only what was completed today. I managed to spend the entire day re-shooting photos, adjusting quality via photoshop, and finally uploading them to the Texas company for a giant order. I bit the bullet and ordered a large amount of cards and prints ofContinue reading “Seemingly Slow”

Slow drawing

Another week closer to the open studio tour and I’ve been working on drawings. I pulled out three incomplete images to finish. 1: black capped chickadee. 2: Ewe 183. 3: winter warbler. The Chickadee is similar to my first pyrography and colored pencils experiment. I think it will be lovely once completed. Ewe 183: IContinue reading “Slow drawing”

July with Family and stuff

Uncle Harold’s 90th birthday was celebrated at the beginning of July. His sons and grandchildren, nieces and nephew gathered for a nice lunch in Eugene. It’s been about 8 years since we last visited. July is racing along and there are so many projects on the tables. House projects are getting thick and heavy. LumberContinue reading “July with Family and stuff”

Finding my Footing

What happens after a big project ends? This is probably the time I dislike the most, the time when you’re not certain what path to take. Where should I go next? What should I focus on? I’m pretty sure loads of people love that open option, but I struggle with being confronted with an openContinue reading “Finding my Footing”

Zebra Done!

Saturday was the culmination of a giant printing project that started two months ago. I printed the zebra with a fantastic group of artists and the organizers of Big Ink at the Whiteaker Print Studio in Eugene. I have forgotten how incredible printmakers are because it’s been years since being involved with any projects. IContinue reading “Zebra Done!”

Two days left

I’m so tired of this image and I only have two days remaining for carving. My right hand is exhausted. My body doesn’t enjoy all the sitting. I just have to buckle down and keep focusing on the end goal. Saturday morning I leave home at 7:30. The block is 40” x 24”. Cherry plywood.

Break time

Yesterday I was forced to take a break, not that I wanted it. My back muscles decided to go wonky. This happens several times a year so I typically can get it under control in a few days. Hopefully that will be the case here. So I’m spending time with ice packs and a heatingContinue reading “Break time”
