Everyday my vision becomes less and posting becomes more difficult. I am cutting back on the number of photos–too difficult on my eyes—Here are two “Mushrooms” just completed. One is for Postman Tong—(another story)—The Blue Bird was carved by Sam McKamie–tweaked a little by me and painted with 1-Shot enamel paint.
Every Queen should have a sphere and my Arleney is a queen. I spent many hours working on this. It is 51 1/2″ in height and 6 1/2″ in diameter. I have not yet decided where to place it. My grandson Jacob is holding it in the picture. I just don’t think I can do better.
This next piece is the first one I have completed in this manner. Notice in the last photo there is a screw dowel mounted in the bottom. It is so the piece can be mounted on a post or deck railing outside. I will be making more of these. The bird was carved by Sam McKamie, i tweaked it a little and painted it in one shot paint. Again, Barbara Kaiser and Anthony Bozzuto can be thanked for the wonderful seashells. The Marble Cullet is from Rick See of West Virginia.—I was fortunate to obtain several Kennedy 1/2 dollars so I am adding them with the Susan B Anthony dollars
We all know I love skunks! I have this old white enamel-ware plate from the 1950s. So I painted the skunk with 1-Shot Enamel and placed matching black buttons around the edge. I added the Kennedy 1/2 dollar and the Susan B Anthony dollar —-and here it is.
