Several people have asked how I completed my most recent wood working project. I used a photoluminescent (glow in the dark) pigment powder and did a resin casting in the wood. It's a beautiful finish that functions as a hard,... Continue reading

I have an emergency kit in the basement, mostly because I recognize I am likely to be stuck in my home without power for a couple days at a time at some point in the future. I don’t want to... Continue reading

My boss is retiring and I made him a retirement gift bag. It's made from retired neck ties and a retired men's suit. I suppose it's also made from retired leather, but let's face it, all leather is retired. Continue reading

So, Daniel bought a new car. It's a Tesla which is an all electric car with a 300 or so mile range. Google built him a docking station so he can charge it at work. It's a really beautiful car.... Continue reading

I'm working on an art quilt now that I can't wait to complete and show. It's inspired from a few different things working in combination. Inspiration #1 - Andy Goldsworthy. He's an installation artist/ecologist? I'm applying labels to him here... Continue reading

I'll begin with the caveat that this post only aims to unpack a question, the responses to which may be a lifetime in the forming. Lately, I've been thinking about the shift from "What is Art?" to "What Does Art... Continue reading

I am very sad to say that Granddaddy passed away yesterday afternoon from lung cancer. He didn't suffer much and he seemed to be very peaceful at the end of his life. Serene. I'll post more about this later, but... Continue reading
