My idea about how to show off what I can do with copper patina will be on diplayed at Las Vegas Artist Gallery next week. Copper is quite soft metal to work with and the patina can be from a deep purple, bark blue to a turquois. The piece that goes in to the book is made from hammer copper, this helps harden it so it’s harder to bend. The feather has been pressed and hammered in to shape but still can be bent. My artist side of me likes a feather to act like a feather, light and delicite. So please treat the feather as a feather made out copper by a artist. The entire piece has been laquered to seal the color.
Thank you Terry Pratchett I used a portion of your book Wee Free Men.
Christmas cards for 2022 will have something to do with candles. The first four candle with candle holder. I will cut them to 5″ x 7″ and attach them to the blank card. They will go to Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery. I don’t make prints anymore I’d rather spend my time painting not cropping images.
