Hey! I know where that factory is. I wonder if it's still standing.

Here are the carving tools I found at an estate sale yesterday. I love tools.



Today I'll be painting again. It is going to rain here so it's perfect for a day indoors. I look forward to your notes, Wendy

Hi Friends, I've had so many of you tell me how excited you get seeing your mugs in progress that I wanted to tell you that's how I feel when I see notes from you posted here. I love reading them and you reward me well. THANK YOU.

Dan wants to run some erronds so I'm going to do this in a very fast way. Abbreviations;

TRR,LLT,ZT,AT,DANNO,TT,BK and h10tiki I've read your notes and appreciate them very much.

I love to teach. Dan says I love to talk and to dispense information. I'm not sure if he's saying it in a kind way. When I was a kid a ran a school in my backyard during summer recess. I mainly taught art to the kids in my neighborhood. As an adult I ran the Nuclear Medicine Program for Sutter Hospitals, again teaching technologists how to do their jobs. Now I'm back to art and having so much fun posting here and connecting with all of you. It's joyful for me.

BK it would be fun to see the factory and to know if they still make tools.
h10tiki that's his favorite hat he wears it on our walks every morning. We did a longer one today.

Shoot Dan wants to leave now. I'll post photos when we get back. I made good headway on the painting yesterday. Later, Wendy

We are back._________________

Progress Report on Oasis painting

I painted some texture to the coconut trunks. Next up palm fronds added to the top.


I added an attachment point to the top and started the fronds.


One done.


All done.


Have a variety of colors to use for plants and trees. See the spray bottle. To keep my paints from drying out I spray them every few minutes. I also use it to thin the paint.


Next I added pebbles to the black sand beach and plants to the foreground. Leaving the black showing through adds depth.


Close up.


My cat has a new fun place. When I stop painting and go to type on the computer she watches me.


Tomorrow I'll report on the kiln and all the Bob projects.

Thanks for checking back, Wendy

On page 99 hang10tiki wrote;
Great update
Can't wait to see what secrets and updates will be on page 100...

So I decided to see who would congratulate me on my thread hitting 100 pages first on page 100.

Congratulations WestADad I'm sending you a Bumatay necklace for being the first person on page 100 to congratulate me. You need to thank hang10tiki for getting me to think up one more secret contest!

little lost tiki and Zero Tiki thank you so much for your notes. I hope everyone has looked at your paintings for the swap. They are so terrific.

Here's a Progress Report:

I love opening the kiln and finding that all is well.


Of the two Missionary's Downfall bowls I knew the Alter style would have cracks.


These cracks are fine and the alter will not fall apart. I'll work to close them when I glaze.


Back side of Pac Man Bob.


Now everything was loaded up and taken out to be hosed off. Dan used a new high pressure nozzle and when he came in he was drenched. Too bad I didn't take photos of that. I'll start glazing these today.


I found four problems with my painting. First, the short frond on the middle palm tree was not working. Second, one of the short palms had a frond in front of a tree that was in front of it. Third, the front pole was leaning. Forth, the plants were too manicured leaving a black line running in front of the bushes.


Started with the pole. I also moved the high point of the thatch roof to be centered over the pole.


Fixed the problems.


Close up.


Taking photos and posting them helps me see problems that I might of missed.

Time for our morning walk. Cheers, Wendy

Well how about that! I had no idea I'd be that lucky. Looking forward to wearing your Bumatay with pride.

The Bob's are looking great and I'll keep watching the painting to see it progress.

Thank you Wendy!

Big hug,
Chris

Prickly Purple Pineapple
That was just in case you are having a secret contest to see who's the first to post a 3 word alliteration involving a double entendre, a color and a tropical fruit

Wendy, I think you should try paperclay to make the altar style bowl holder to see if that fixes your crack problem. The ceramics and the painting are both looking beautiful. Eliminating the "manicured" effect on the plants was a good call. The other 3 were things that would bug you but no one else would ever notice (or maybe artist do that - go to a gallery and try to find mistakes by others artists? Kind of like I watch hosptipal movies and laugh at the stupid stuff they do) Can't wait to see what other surprises await us.

Wendy, the Bumatay necklace arrived yesterday and it is a show piece for sure! I will be posting pictures soon, thank you so much for all your great work.

This is just a test and not the Bumatay...
