i have been working hard these last two days getting something done for the "heros" theme for somerset studio magazine. the absolute deadline is the 15th. i have finally settled on about 6 different medals i created to award one of my favorite heros - my father...or i should say, fatherhood in general, not just mine. they are stunning, i have to admit. after i finish them i will write up how i created them. sometimes, i do this just because i would forget. i know i am very forgetful, but i would forget anyway because as i work, one idea leads to another and before you know it, i have ventured off into unknown territory where no man has created before. AND somewhere i' m not likely to go again - unless the same set of circumstances present themselves in the exact same manner. not likely.
so i write out the recipe.
i can't wait to show them off. they are jewels.
in the flavor of the "hero" creations, here is a painting is of uncle earl - during world war II.
