The other thing!


10" wooden bowl - mixed media

This is the finished commission I mentioned earlier in the week. Yes - there is a glare. The concave surface is extremely difficult to photograph... I do best outside in natural daylight - but, with a windy below zero, snowy climate right now - going outside for any reason is to be avoided! This will be going to someone who is retiring from a 16 year coaching position.

I'm sorry about the 2 deleted comments. It appears to me that both "Jon" and "Fox" have decided to promote their products (computer ware) by posting links to their websites. Those links bring up a website that is difficult to get out of. I find that kind of blatant, unsolicited self-promotion on my site irritating to say the least. I may have to go the route of a computer generated word for my comments - something I didn't want to have to do. :(

Hi Helen,

This is really beautiful despite of the glare!

Thank you - each of you - for your encouraging comments. I haven't heard if the final recipient was happy, but the one who commissioned me to do the bowl was!
