Greetings Friends

I'v had Many ups and downs this year.
  I've lost a few... 
 Lately I have been winning a few!  
...because of good friends 
and an attitude of
Not Giving UP!.

If we are looking for it! 
We will find the way

I met artist, Jamie Morath at the 
Loveland Artist Studios on Main 
 She was moving her art work to a new studio 
just across from mine.  
She creates what I would call whimsical
every day life - folk art .
So... I had  this idea 
to make some 3 dimensional art pieces from wood 
with her designs.
...and Jamie was all for it!

We are developing lots of plans to do more...
... but here is my first attempt at turn her painting 
"Raining Cats, and Flipping Dogs", 
 into 3-D wood form on a round stand.

Jamie's print of her original painting

I started with a piece of pine board
copied the basic shape of the lady 

and umbrella and her puppy

here she is in the beginning stages

  I'll be doing more of these with Jamie Morath 
we have plans already!

Soon to be made into a sculpture also

Jamie's print of a beach martini chef titled
"It's Five O'Clock Somewhere"

This is our wooden sculpture from Jamie's design.

I plan to make the next one with tiny sea creatures on the sand/ base like a blue crab or star fish.

I am working on the wooden piece for this art work today
Soon we will have many more of our wooden art pieces

Thanks you for opening a window Lord!
And thank you for good friends
good people
and a good life!

And am also VERY ready for nicer weather!!
