  • 1/3 of the Intarsia Marathon

    Over the past 3 weeks I've made 10 intarsia pieces and took two off the wall in my den for a consignment art shop in our area. Fortunately for me, the owner loved them and bought them outright instead of taking them on consignment. I didn't have time to get all the pictures taken, but the projects were: Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, Bluenose, Sea Turtle, Cardinal in the Snow, Shy Frog, Dragonfly on Cattails, Sandhill Cranes (2) Kitten in a Christmas Stocking, Covered Bridge and a Tree Frog. Here are photos of 4 of them.

                  They look wondeful Jan .... I am guessing that the eye is OK too.

                      Thanks for the kind words, everyone.
                      Rhys: The eye is perfect! I bugged the surgeon enough that she agrees that the other eye can be done some time in March. If there is a cancellation, then sooner. I can't wait.

                        Jan glad to hear your eye is doing so well and now you can get the other one done. but from the look of your work I think you could do as good as me, If you were blind. Lance

                            10 pieces in three weeks(??!!). I was lucky to get 5 pieces done in three months!

                            And, Jan, you never do poor work - no wonder the shop owner bought them all.

                              Tony, not much else got done around here. I spent my life in the shop. Now it looks like it's going to get worse. The art shop is expanding and the owner wants me to fill a 12 ft x 8 ft. wall. So much for my golf game!

                                Jo, that is a work of art. With Norwegian heritage, I really appreciate that piece.

                                Hi Betty - you surely have one heck of a lot of patience in dealing with Bruce!!!

                                The important thing is that he appears to be heading in the right direction and hopefully it won't be too much longer before you can both put these issues behind you. And once he's recovered with your invaluable...

                                Back 2 steps. He had to have a spot cut off his back for biopsy and the dr. had to go deep, needed stitches inside and outside, so no exercises for 2 weeks until stitches are out. He sure is high maintenance!

                                Beautiful inspiring work Tony!

                                Glad to hear that the Kobalt saw worked out very well.

                                FYI - I took delivery last week of a SKILSAW 8 1/4" blade portable table saw to assist in cutting pieces for segmented bowl work which I was very pleased to find out of the box was set...
