Nearly 3 years ago I halted this blog – perhaps a little discouraged that some found it ugly or at least disconcerting aesthetically.It sat about for years as things do but evolution comes in bursts as does inspiration.REALLY do we all find everything in nature beautiful? Not at all – but everything in nature is beautiful to at least some of us.So it is with Art and Craft. SUDDENLY THINGS ARE ON THE MOVE AGAIN. BUT HEY! What is this? and this It seems as if ...
Trading In….; ‘Beauty For Ashes’ ....achromatic grey, stirred by your whisper i squall, i process too end…..—by flp —————————————————————————————————————————————————&...
Wood Weathered Friends ....beauty is my way of giving thanks, and drinking deeply from the circumstances of life that surround me. Where I to walk into a room, beauty would fade back into shadows of after-space….but, upon my passing through and beyond, beauty is able to re-focus and splay her-self as an example of the fine Lady she is. Of all the tales of wood that I have learned, there is no-thing that compares with the first taste of abundant life that springs forth, in that ...
Live in the woods….Wood Art Well here we go….while out last Saturday working in the woods, I happened to be down in a place that does not get into my normal forest travels. I was down in this area last fall cutting trees for this winter’s burning and happened to be down here not long ago looking at some trees that had recently fallen, due to storm winds. Last Saturday was spent cleaning those trees up and while on a break that morning, I decided to waunder around. Foun...
Dis-Membered Barkin’ on a Pine Slab ....ended my day the other evening removing some more bark from a pine slab I’m trying to get dried out, in the faster then usual manner since this is one I want to start workin’ on around January. Much of my time spent outside now is divided between cutting new trees for next year, cutting slabs for future furniture and ‘wood art’ that has to be processed for drying a year to two years down the road. While then finding the ...
Visual Imagination ….so the lighting and thunder clap their hands, a leaf falls to the ground sending forth vibrations of welcome, an ant crawls out from under that leaf in the light of day, and i stare just knowing that all ‘just is’ as should be…. —-from my place of silence in these wooded fields of dreams, comes an-other much like my-self seeking repose, after all what use is body or soul confined to theological debate, when by the spirit one learns to d...
Gone Waundering ....gone waundering! gone waundering and so i go, out in the outback’s of my mind, far from the shore’s of hominal demesne…. —-gone waundering where the paths of other’s have not trod, while the winds of government’s blow past my head, i catch the currents of ancient’s past, and watch as these gladly welcome me back…. —-gone waundering with a golden field of dreams, when to my awakened surprise i saw the reality, h...
Wood Gathering with Beauty ....beauty is a form of life, that once striking the eye of the be-holder,can thereafter only suffer all the better of ‘very good’, where manics of frozen frames walk away wondering at what moment in time they missed the boat…. —-ah yes it is so, sometimes i waunder in and out of forest wonder, filling my head with the three graces of eve, ‘give’-’gather’ and ‘gustable’.... —-now having this...
Wood Scripted Beauty ....’as a man thinks so is he’, and so we start to think till one day we realize that we have become what we thought…. —-therefore, one might say that it is profitable in all things, to think on those things which are for the betterment of ones body, soul and spirit…. —-now one can go deeper into the heart of the matter by peeling back the outer shell of thinking, till one is found in the inner workings of seeing, and from this...
When people view some of my projects. They always mention some of the beautiful background scenery in the background. I’d like share the whole beauty that we have here. Take a peek I built this sailboat in 1965, from plans In Mechanics Illustrated Magazine.
