  • Some kittens

    I feel I have made more progress since my last post, most certainly with materials. The internet is such a blessing when there are certain things we need and with some determination and some good fortune I have found exactly what I need to improve my portrait work. I have the finishes just right now and yesterday I managed to get some frames with a deep enough recess on the back so I can keep the glass in as well as the 3/16th birch ply and the 3/16th MDF backing board.

    Cutting the kittens was very time consuming but I cheated a little, I stack cut 3 of them together and because it was a little fragile I used 2inch blue tape to hold the stack together and cover the front and then glued the pattern on. I enlarged the pattern so it would fit just nice into the 8 x 10 frame. I used ultra reverse number three blades on the kittens and must have used six at least.

        Very nice, good finish and I like the dog pic. Have been experimenting with a portrait of my own two dogs, made a start on the pattern for the dog, just need to do one for the *****.

          Oh what a treat. Years ago we went to Air Shows in Oshkosh, WI. Greatest memory was the Concorde.

          Not quite. The idiots in Maryland are keeping the kids in school until June 21. A lot of schools don’t have a/c so they will send them home early. The blue angels are here every year for graduation. In September there is something at the inner harbor and the Blue Angels, Thunderbirds and another group...
