Well I finished cutting the wildlife collage this last long weekend. I have dipped it in actually painted on Danish oil. It has been drying since Monday. I checked it tonight and it is still not dry. It has been fun cutting and it has been awhile since I’ve cut on a slab of wood and have to admit I’ve missed it. As soon as it is done I will post a picture.

I did make some progress and finsihed the white tailed deer and started on the Elk bull and cow. I should be done cutting on it this weekend. Then It’ll take me time to sand the thin pieces. I’ll keep you posted.

On the po...

He is rooted in his place with strength and dignity, not so distinct from the trees surrounding him. Before ...
After seeing Dick’s wonderful photos of the deer, I was reminded of my great photo opportunity of the summer. I’d never seen this creature before and was fascinated. Since my first sighting, I saw it three times. That was last month and I haven’t seen it since. These moths supposedly love honeysuckle and feed during mid-day. To me, they look like a cross between a hummingbird, a crayfish, and a bumblebee.
