Pounding Metal eliminates stress

What's in my head, comes out my hands....
I believe that.

This became a Talisman for a friend 
who works right behind front lines in a Madison hospital.
It hangs perfectly.
When the wearer begins to move about, it begins to look left and right,
sort of watching out, 
as a good Talisman should, protecting it's charge.
(It's now referred to as a Talisman Action Figure)

I thought perhaps I had more worried heads in me.  No.
Red Herrings! 
Red Herrings are good.
They are not stinky fish to avoid,
but kindly ushers showing the Curious paths never considered.

Dental waiting room, 8:30 AM.

"Informative Postcard" seeds:







These led to THIS: INFORMATIVE POSTCARDS

INFORMATIVE POSTCARDS

When phone calls, and  skype, 
and letters and visits don't work~~~

---> "INFORMATIVE POSTCARDS"! <--- font="">













 Under each postcard is a reminder 
of what the original INFORMATIVE POSTCARD looked like.
That's it.
This project is the final result of these scribblings.

Quickly, loosely done, 4" x 5.75" experimental postcards. 
A bit messy around the edges, 
but I like them so much 
I'm not excited about mailing them off into the world.

Day Class with Ali Kauss

I took a day class from Ali Kauss of Spring Green

I set my first stone....
and reminded myself how to solder.
This is what I brought home, wore that night out to supper...

and SOLD IT!

about 2" x 5/8", sterling, bronze, 
and a blue stone that I forgot the name of.

Lone Rock oil painting

The second of four I am doing 
so I can give two away to the Spring Green Art whatever it's called 
to raise money for the Arts.  
It's a good thing to do.
