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.

Copper Bookmark will display at the Las Vegas Artist Guild in the December show.

The watercolor painting got a name “Moon Rise” I made a new frame and decided mat it in black mat board. This watercolor painting is going to Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery at the Galleria Mall Las Vegas Artists Guild is next to the upstairs entrance to Dillards Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery is a nonprofit gallery that represents a lot of local artists from Las Vegas.

It’s a bell I weather tested the oil primer and oil paints painted on the oil primer. They hung for 6 months outside so they went from 2 inches of snow to 115 degrees and with no problems.

Done for the day.

First break at Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery. The oil painting’s cloth is still in the ugly stag. I really don’t copy my photos. The painting will tell a simple story.
