3Wild Rim, Black Milk Paint Bowl Cherry Wood, Black Milk Paint, Matching Power Carved Wild Rim Inside and Out, Beads Outside, Matching Coves Inside, 3.5" x 7.5", 10/2011
After the Al Stirt class I got to thinking about the bowls I did in the class looked great on the outside but you see more of the inside then outside when they are sitting on a table.
So, this is the first bowl where I pioneered two new techniques that are may become my signature style. 1. The rim is carved inside and out. 2. The coves cut on the inside mirror the beads cut on the outside of bowl.

Oh no! Yet another rainy day in January rather than snow.
5Plaid Vase Poplar Wood, Acrylic Paints, 3.5" x 5.25", 9/2009
I love the colors in this vase. But, it is destine to be one of a kind. Drawling all of the different sized boxes so they share common lines but still look random was mentally very challenging and time consuming. Staying with in the lines while painting it challenged my painting stills.
6Bronze or Wood? $140 Cherry Wood, Black Milk Paint, 2 Power Carved Textures, 1.25" x 7.5" x 9.5", 12/2011
