Special need Child or Adult

Lastly for tonight Sunday), I am finishing a “Mushroom” for a little guy whose is in my granddaughter Lizzy’s family. His name is Cooper. He is such a great little guy. I am using some of the items Andrea sent to me.—-Please, if you know a handicapped child—one with Special Needs OR an adult with special Needs—or someone who needs an uplift, please let me know. I will pay shipping so there is no cost. I want my art to bring joy!

Sam. Bird

For the last 2 or 3 years I have worked with Sam McKamie of Arkansas. The birds he carves are wonderful and are very reasonably priced. I often buy a few (or several) at a time. Several months ago I made some of the “Mushrooms” and placed a dowel in the center of each. Today I placed one of Sam’s birds on one the dowels, mounting it onto the “Mushrooms”? The bird was totally carved and finished by Sam. I made the “Mushroom”.—photos were taken in the studio/garage–poor lighting.

Largest Garden Stake I Have Made

Last night (Tuesday) about midnight I photographed this Garden Stake I had just completed. It was in the dark studio/garage so the photos are not as good as I would like. The Garden Stake is the largest I have done. I would estimate it to be 30″ tall —the top ball portion is about 4″ round. It is heavy. I will be doing more of these. This can be place directly into the ground or in a planter box–It has a very sharp end.

Sam McKamie’s Bird on Hanging Ornament Ball

This is the first time I have ever incorporated one of Sam McKamie’s carved birds into the Hanging Ornament Balls. OMG I love the way it turned out–will be hung in our patio tomorrow, Wednesday. These take time as I tweak the bird and finish it in 1-Shot Enamel—Estimate time on completing one of these is portions of 3 or 4 days, perhaps longer.

Sam McKamie’s Bird

Here is the latest one I am working on—-I saw a few mistakes I must correct so there are very few pictures. I love being back to working with the birds carved by Sam McKamie. I work on them a little and paint them in 1-Shot paint.

Finally A Light yellow “Mushroom”

I have been wanting to make a very light yellow “Mushroom” and finally here it is—It is yellow with a green base. Please take into account my eyes and also I am having to take the photos inside–not good!—The true color is just a tiny but lighter than the last 4 photos
