I know " 'tis the season", but the season for what? I pray his
season finds you with the time to rest and reflect on the fact that
God so loved us, that He sent his Son into this world to die for our
sins, and to celebrate that good news.
As I write this I am on my way to Amarillo to retrieve my truck,
load it with wood, and get back to Colorado before the next snow
storm. Since this last season has been one of deadlines, travel and
teaching , it is the first chance I have had since I parked it there
June was filled with sculpting, a class here in Loveland, giving
private lessons and a trip to Texas. We were privileged to hit the
canyons on the hottest day ever recorded in Amarillo, Texas, 117
degrees. We were however, 50 miles southeast and 1,500 feet lower in
elevation. Although I have never hauled logs in a convection oven,
the 30 mph wind gave me a good idea of what that would be like.
July was spent getting ready for Sculpture in the Park( creating and
finishing 13 sculptures) Lots of long hours and late nights.
Sculpture in the Park was a success. I unveiled a new
bronzewood meld series of barn
swallows, one of which is in my 2012 calendar.
From mid-September through the first week of November I taught four,
one week long classes around the country. Because the class at Marc
Adams School of Woodworking in Illinois was so large, I had to
employ new disciplines in my teaching so I learned a lot. One really
valuable improvement emerged this year, I had the students bring a
video recording device to record the instruction portions of class,
especially their one on one time with me. They all found this very
valuable for a variety of reasons. I will eventually compile some of
these into teaching videos (DVD's).
Shuffled in with all the teaching and travels were some really
challenging commissions. Some of which are shown below.
Thank you for your continued interest in my work, there are a few
items on the works for sale and works in progress pages. Also, I
will have a Facebook and a Linked-in page after the first of the
year that I will be updating regularly. Of course this might put my
Luddite status in jeopardy, but, hey, I just noticed it is the 21st
One more item, my new calendar is out, entitled
"Movement In Sculpture", they make
great Christmas gifts, however you need to order very soon if you
need them by Christmas.
Have a Merry Christmas and a blessed new Year!
