These look so much nicer after I wipe some stains on them. I really like these two. The roofs are a mother to photograph though, where is that professional that I know....because the pro didn't shoot these, you can't tell, but they both have about four different layers of terra sig and stains and are in the kiln now for their third firing. These things are eating up a lot of time. I have to roll out the slabs one day, cut out the templates and build them the next, wait for drying so I can apply the sig, then I sand the layers with steel wool, fire, apply stains, fire again, think that they need more stains, fire again, clean them, apply wax, polish.....then try to sell them somewhere!
I am starting to get a bit of an itch to get some canvas and paints and do some paintings of them. It has been forever since I painted and I know they would be crap, but I think it would be fun to try. What I really need to do is take a class. What I really need is another project haha!
This sweet little girl came and ate breakfast in my yard and then laid down for a bit. I have never seen one do this in the day time. She is likely the one that ate my tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and squash too. Our dog found a place in the back of our property that had quite a smell, he laid down there and rolled around forever then came to me and we had to go right in for a bath. What a smell. I think they are bedding down there at night. I think I heard that the town of Chapel Hill had a meeting to discuss hiring professional bow hunters to come and kill all of the deer in town because the precious flowers were being eaten. Did I dream that? Do I really live in a place where such people think such stupid thoughts? Kill a living creature because it ate your farking flowers. Yeah, that'll show 'em! (notice I chose my better word?!)
