The Cobbler's Bench

It's a fine looking group ..all 64 of them. I fell in love with the old wood handles and shapes of the tools, the different patinas, some splattered with paint, some had carved initials, all had wear from a previous life....

Some of the tools went to Guardino Gallery in Portland and some went to Mary Lou ZEEK Galley in Salem. The rest will be at the LCAC show at Multnmomah Art Center This Friday Dec 7th from 10am - 9 pm and Sat. Dec. 8th from 9am - 4 pm. There are 8 new birds on vintage wheels, a new Boat for boatman &.........

The tools all carved and waiting to be painted and enhanced

Blocks were cut, so they standup like little soldiers
They started off rough, finding just the right features for each one

Jason Cohoon, the photographer extraordinaire finding just the right angle
My daughter Nicole assists in the madness
The beer was near

Meanwhile..... all around the cobbler's bench.....I made feet, hands.   Auditioning just the right arms and legs.

The New girls  Trixie  (36 ") in the middle and Lulu (42") on the right.  Decided to sit with Scarlett (58") who's home after her world tour

 Boatman has a shinny new boat with red wheels

I will be at the Artist Repertory Theater this Sat. from 5-10, There's a special show. But the very swanky lobby is open to the public

for some reason i was not able to read your post, only half of it can be seen.
the columns on your blog seem to be out of proportion.
