Progressing on a number of fronts

As is usual on Wednesdays the day started with an early quiet morning quiet - accompanied of course by a gentle chorus of birds.

And over the last couple of days I have been progressing work on a few commissions including sketching the Lomandras to scale for the cutouts on the ceiling panels in the local supermarket.

And stamping many more words for the Daily Words commission.

Testing out a new tool - a shop press - to see how useful it will be to create pressed components for a job.

So the creative life is never dull.


  1. Busy man! The lomandra leaves will look wonderful! I'm curious about the press - I'm sure something interesting will be happening there...


  2. Hello, Barry.

     Sculpture of metal is very profound. Changes, such as fate seems to have appeared.
     Have a good weekend. From Japan, ruma❃
