    Tried something different. The wood is 1/8" BB plywood. There is 6 layers. The frames I made like small serving trays that the pictures sit down in. The frames are 1/4" oak. Ever try to mix paint and come up with the color of a female cardinal? Artist I am not, I did enjoy making them.

    Well Mick, I think they are beautiful.
    I love cardinals and you have done a fabulous job. "A painter your not", I disagree with that statement, I really do love them.

          Those look great Mick, and the painting looks great too. I'm always amazed by the variety and quality of things people on here produce.

          Judging by Steve's photos you did very well with the colour - I don't think we have cardinals here in NS, which is a shame.

            That looks really nice and we have cardinals here. Yours look very good and very close to the ones that feed in the back.

                  Love it-- i think you are quite good at painting--much more so than I will ever be..And I like the way you framed them--very clever of you.

                    Very impressive ! Did you make the tray components using a template?

                      Gill, saw the trays in a craft store and remembered how they looked. Went home and drew up a pattern for them, is that stealing? They are 9 1/2" X 12".

                        Of course it's not stealing, Mick. Heck, there's a whole seaside resort over here called Skegness which was a direct copy of another resort called Scarborough. Nobody accused the architects of theft.

                        Similarly, Brighton Pavilion was built by the Prince Regent as a copy of the Taj Mahal.

                        Lots of people copy good ideas quite legally; there's a world of difference between taking inspiration and plagiarism.

                            Very nice. That could be featured in a future article along with plans of course.

                                Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                                I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                                For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                                The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                                Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                                So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.

                                Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
