And it was a Good Day!

I had a visit with a friend yesterday;  
how nice it is to get with another woman 
and just share what it going on in your lives! 
 After she left, I puttered at the lathe 
and really caught on to the hollowing part of bowl making. 
 A sharp tool really makes it so much easier! 
 Today I will apply the finishes and have a completed bowl!
I ordered these wood blanks from Amazon--they really do have everything! lol 
 I have plans for these, just wait and see. 
 The 3 x 3 x 6" pieces are Black Walnut 
and the square 5 x 5 x 3" is Sapele which is a wood 
that is being used instead of the endangered Mahogany.  
I've also been doing the painting for winter cards...
I forgot to add snow to the first one 
but have now added the dots of white ink to represent snow falling.
  It's fun to just play but my favorite one so far 
is this one--no surprise--because it is line and wash 
which really looks so neat and defined 
which is my style in so many other areas, too!


  1. Have I mentioned how gorgeous the wood is?! I just love it! The paintings are beautiful, too... someday I plan to take the time to get educated on watercolor techniques and give it a try... in the meantime, I enjoy yours! :)

  2. Beautiful cards and what a gorgeous bowl! Curious about what you will do with the blocks of wood....

  3. Beautiful work on the bowl and the cards. I love the one with the covered bridge.

  4. I'm curious about your plans too. I love the pile of wood shavings! The bowl is made so quickly! The cards are so pretty, I don't think I could choose a favorite.

  5. What a gorgeous bowl!! And the art is again perfect.

My niece makes these wooden cow faces for wall art--they are 12" tall and full of character!  I'm bringing one home with me-they wi...
