As the saying goes – I’m on a roll.
It seems a long time since I drew fretwork, and I really missed it. While I like to do a lot of different types of designing from painting to cutting to building things, one of the things that I find to be most satisfying to draw and cut is fretwork.
So that’s what I am gonna do!
Yesterday I hit a good rhythm and was able to not only finish up on the design I featured in the blog, but completely finish a second one:
. . . and do the majority of drawing on a third:
The good part is, I have several others in mind right at this moment. I really want to just keep on drawing at this point. So I think that is what I am going to do.
It is nice to be able to work like this and have trouble keeping up with my ideas. My notebook is full of new things to do after this series of designs is complete, so I want to keep on moving right along.
I am going to spend today doing as much drawing as I can, and perhaps by tomorrow I will be ready for for the scroll saw. I could probably get cutting right now, but I don’t want to lose the flow of work that I have going now and get off track. Now is the time to follow through with the inspirations.
I am going to keep it short today and get right to things. I hope you enjoy my little sample pictures. Translated to wood they should look pretty cool.
Have a great Friday. For those of you off of work today (everything is closed around here) I hope you take some extra time to do something creative and fun.
Enjoy your day!
