Rain Barrel

Finally found a rain barrel that works (at least in theory) and isn't godawful ugly.

Left over from last year and on sale at Home Depot

Nice Morning

Still chilly with a little fog, but it should be a good day. I've been painting for a couple of hours and that may be influencing my mood, but something usually does.

Little Blue Tables

I made these for our new "guest" room. We've never had a guest room. We've seldom needed one. We don't really have a lot of over night guests. It was Isabel's room and it will be nicer for her when she comes home.

Doing the Other Thing I Do

I make pipe racks. My cousin Mark and I started making them 6 or 7 years ago. It's fun and we make enough money to pay for our new pipes and favorite tobaccos (yes, we have both smoked pipes for about 30 yrs.). It's a nice break from painting. Painting all the time would be hard. Too hard.

Ready to paint

Ready to ship to California, Missouri and South Carolina
