Afternoon Watch

Afternoon Watch 2.5 x 4.5" I've posted my miniature appropriately now...with a penny for relational purposes. I don't know if this is the title I'm sticking with. I have to sit on it for a while and let it "marinate" in my head before declaring it finished. I had more fun with this wolf! I had taken his photo last year in Yellowstone but placed him beside a stream in Yosemite. My challenge for this was to hybridize the Yosemite granite with Yellowstone's yellowish Rhyolite to create a believable landscape. It took forever but my energy is no less depleted! I'm ready to venture on to the next adolescent guinea hen perhaps? We'll see...

Here's the latest. I have one more to go to complete this set. After this perhaps some stained glass birds. This method is too much fun to let go after a few tries!

Faux Stained Glass

These are the first of two in a series of stained glass windows I've created. Well...they aren't actually REAL windows. I transformed my designs into windows using my line drawings and photos from real stained glass windows. This way requires fewer band-aids from glass cuts. Now...back to miniatures!

Who Cooks for YOU?

Who Cooks for YOU? 2.125 x 2.125" I did a quicky miniature this week to honor my old owl buddies in Iowa. We used to love to sit out on the back deck and listen to the Barred Owl conventions in the woods. They would call out "Who Cooks For YOU!" and then laugh. They sound like nerds laughing!
