Greetings Yooper Friends. I have succumbed to the dog days of summer and become very lazy. It is just as easy to hibernate from the heat as it is from the cold. I see messages from friends in Vermont experiencing mornings in the 50s. I’m seeing more and more signs of autumn, so I guess it is time to shake of the laziness and get moving.
I’m never too lazy to be punching, however. These two that I’m showing you today I drew up myself, taking cues from talented punchers that I see ‘out there.’ I’ve completed the G for giraffe and the H for (what else?) horse. Gee, there is an entire alphabet out there. I could be busy for a long time…as long as I can stay creative. What do you think?
Wow, it is amazing what a picture shows. As I look at the giraffe, it looks stark white to me. I used the Valdani ecru, but I think I might need to back up and do some walnut crystal staining to tone it down.
Mr. Horse is much more to my liking. The variegated Valdani adds so much texture. Well, there is nothing that can’t be fixed. As my brother the carpenter says, “I can fix anything but a broken heart.” Stay tuned for further updates. Same station, not sure about the time.
