dogwood / doodle
As many of you know I am taking a metalsmithing class, in an earlier post I shared with you the beginning stages of this little box with the dogwood blossom graphic. I have always liked what it represents - new life. Well the box is almost complete - Sunday I should be able to finish up the final sanding and polishing of it. I have to say I'm pretty pleased with it even though I have no idea I will use it for - it's very tiny. The instructor called it a "tooth fairy" box, but I obviously won't be needing it for that purpose. Any ideas what I could use it for? / a little doodle. "amor vincit omnia" was the theme for the painting "triumph of bacchus and ariadne". and it means love conquers all, so i've been scribbling it everywhere (no i'm not a freshman in highschool) and drew it in my sketchbook. i scanned it and colored it in photoshop. just for fun.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
