I am so busy these days with shows and carvings that I’ve rarely had time to spy on you. I mentioned to a few of you that I have sold all but two of my carvings and never before have I not had some type of inventory to sell so I’m burning the candle at both ends trying to whip some up, which, as you know, ain’t quite that easy.
However, I’m having a good time and carving for near sales keeps me more ambitious than carving for potential sales some day down the road.
Boy, did we get hit with a blast of winter! I haven’t felt -40 degrees for about thirty years and I was reminded of why I loved BC so much. But it didn’t last and even -5 feels like spring so now we have been warned what a winter storm advisory means.
I’ve made 5 cast miniatures to go with this bare back rigging and to try some cold cast bronze powder. It works quite well.
I’ve also just completed my 2nd painting – a bit different than the horses but I want to try all styles before I decide what type of painter I am.
Laura and I hope you are all having a happy holiday and keeping warm out there in the shops across the cold states and provinces.
