It is Monday morning four days before Christmas and I hear the gentle patter of rain outside. Today is the shortest day of the year and tomorrow we begin to see daylight longer.
I have been working on a prim reproduction from Magdalena Briner. I do love her work. This one is called Dog and Two Crows. I haven’t decided yet if I will add any walnut crystal aging to my version. I used a few bright yellows that I’m not certain I’m happy with. Also I don’t know if I’ll add a hanging sleeve to the back or put it on a hornbook. (Cold weather might play into that decision since any wood cutting is done in the garage.)
Let me take this time to wish you all blessings of the season as we celebrate Christmas and look forward to another new beginning in 2016.
