I also enjoy checking out what others are reading and found Ray Whitledge's new blog at http://modernminiatures-whitledge-burgess.blogspot.ca/ Attending one of Whitledge-Burgess workshops has been on my bucket list for a long time, so I was immediately impressed that Ray was sharing his work online on his blog. I sank in every word he wrote and devoured every picture like a starving person. I sent him a comment, and he was so kind to respond back to me on my blog.
That was just the inspiration I needed to go down into my workshop today. I have stepped into the workshop on the rare occasion in the past year, tore apart a miniature chair, left it alone, started to stain and sand the wood, then left it alone, came back and recovered the pieces, left it alone, started to glue in back together, then left it alone.....you are getting the picture I take it.....lol. But at last one chair is completed, but I still have one more to go. It will someday find it's way into my castle room.
It started as the cream chair shown below, then there's a shot of the second chair torn apart, and my finished chair.
It's unbelieveable that while I have deserted my post for a year, people have still dropped by to read my ramblings. I have climbed to 194 followers in my absense. Thanks for taking an interest in my work, when even I had not taken any interest it, I am trully grateful. I have so much reading to catch up on all of your blogs as well. I have regained my inspiration.
It looks like blogger as made changes to their format in the past year, and my template also seems to have changed. I'll try to make some changes here as well. So mini things to do......
I'm off to paint a white metal bike now to make it look old and rusted to go in front of my miniature bakery.
Thank you to each and everyone for inspiring me with your work.
