The bird light is slowly taking form. Yesterday I spent a bit of time with power tools and scrap pieces of lumber. The case is now 8″x 8″x 5.5″. It might become a bit narrower since there is a split that formed on one of the sides. I’ll need to do a bitContinue reading “Case for the Bird”
Another one moving out the door? It may be so! This is the Oregon Ash tree inspired piece that surprised me with the heart shape created between two panels. I really hadn’t planned it out, but there it was. So far, I’ve only created 4 of this design. Two have real homes in Oregon, oneContinue reading “Moving on”
Finished! One down and more lights to come. I really need to hunker down and start the screen printing ideas running through my brain. The blackberry brambles are waiting. Anyway, it’s nice to have one thing completed. Unfortunately illness has stuck and I’ve been laid up in bed since Tuesday night. Today, I’m a tadContinue reading “One down”

Saturday was the day for leaf work. Dave had nicely harvested four fronds from the licorice ferns at the park several days ago . Originally I was thinking about using bracken ferns, but he was unable to locate the plants. Oh well! These will do nicely. I chose to print the leaves onto butcher paperContinue reading “Shoji Birdhouse: Almost complete!”

How often have I started a project with one thing in mind only to shift towards, well, something a bit different. Since I have not posted my original ideas/drawings, you would have no idea what I’ve been thinking. The birdhouse deadline is fast approaching and many artists have already dropped their work off. Will IContinue reading “Shoji Birdhouse Lamp”
Well, not me personally, but a trip to a warm place with lots of sunshine would be nice! No, I’m referring to the piece donated for the silent auction at the Houston Texas event. It raised $65 for the National Education Program for Homeless Children & Youth. My sister-in-law let me know it received severalContinue reading “Off to Florida”
