Feeling sore and creative - not a good combination

332 days ago by mungletroll | 4 comments »

Well, yesterday I was in hospital for a triple hernia repair, I’m not sure how I managed that but that’s life I suppose. Anyway, here I am with time on my hands and the urge to create something but sore as hell, not allowed to lift anything heavier than a cup of tea and unable to walk long distances. So what do I do about this. Well, I’ve caught up on posting some past projects on here and I thought maybe I should start something new and document progress. I’...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #76: Wood and I....Sculpture

1170 days ago by frank | 10 comments »

Wood and I….Sculpture ….while walking down the isles of life’s design,i was roiled enough to loose my way on a walk-about,the forest and trees no-longer fed this hunger within,and for days becoming years my dreams died as inaesthetic…. ….that was in-deed the hole i dug until i had no-strength dig deeper,what came next was confronting my dragon and refusing his lies any-more,so i went back to the woods fearing to hope and believe what i might find,what i found was that ...

DragonFly Harp #11: Almost Finished!

1173 days ago by Donna Menke | 7 comments »

Lots of vegetable gardening done in the past couple of months, and it could not wait, so the harp building project had to wait a while. Finally last week I got back into it after 6 weeks of seldom working on it. Now it is almost done- but let me go back to where I left off in March.I had these beautiful abalone mother-of-pearl wings provided to me by a fine Lumberjock. She also did a great blog about how to do inlays, and that was very helpful to me. I didn’t follow instructions exactly...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #49: Awakened In Your Gobi

1982 days ago by frank | 5 comments »

Awakened In Your Gobi ....it seems as if i am teller of tales that bears your beauty forth,why am i so woodly anomic when all your warmth of hue surrounds me,culler of the art that comes from hand-tooling your existence of being,while faith-fully noted are the cracks of character that provide story…. ....planed from the start by gouges that wrought some sense of stability,your spoken desire was what soon caught the attention of my ears,and what if my hands started breathing wi...

2024 days ago by frank | 4 comments »

Occulation of the Wood ....what is this shadow that transverses your mind, when you look at wood? One table top of rock maple that I am presently working on and hope to have done by the end of March. Many of the details as to how and what I am going after have not yet been fully worked out//worked in, but that’s only a matter of time as I listen to what the wood would say to me. ....and…. Things not known at this point: 1.)—no-name…. 2.)&#...

2459 days ago by frank | 4 comments »

Screeching Laughter of Owly Wood ....wherefore comes this walking waunderer of zenith’s quest, with feet planted firmly bearing azimuth’s best, north was my starting till i touched 90 degree at east, and then i finished by coming full circle with accumulated zest…. —-if i should ever stop, in this well-full driven purpose of eating frenzy, as to what i have be-come, then pay no-attention to what i might have been, and know that for sure my spirit has taken flight...
