hedge update

So I moved this potted tree that is on the porch over to the big square HOLE in the hedge and when you are sitting "just right" on the porch you don't notice the hedge hole too much. However this is the first day since I moved here that I could see the neighbors' in their swimsuits-and their three dogs.

I made a bunch of items at ceramics today----see photos - and also glazed some of my other items....shes charging $180 a month with $37 per bag o' clay so I will quit ceramics after my 5 weeks are up and try watercolors.......much cheaper I predict----I did buy some Winsor & Newton watercolors off Ebay today so I am set and ready to go....might get an easel down the road if I dig watercolor. I like the idea of portable less expensive art....although I do love clay and the people there are nice---but it costs more per hour than I make at work!!!! They also have stained glass classes and that appeals to me--partly because I figure more men might make stained glass art.

UMMMM--kinda a crazy bowl thingy....................

Glazed items ready for kiln

This turned out WAYYYY different than the photo here

Pendants in the making ready for bisque firing

maybe you could set up a table at one of the local craft fairs and sell some of your stuff to pay for the ceramics class/materials prices? you've been doing ceramics so long and you are good enough to do it if you wanted to

That's amazingly expensive for a rather nice 'hobby' at the end of the day...

(*then thinks about his music fix averaging out over the year...hmm?!*)

Shame as I rather like the pot thingy you made, looks nice the first picture?

I've always fancied the idea of painting but always seem at a loss as to where to begin from..?

Look forward to hearing about yer progress on the artistic front (not to mention the search for arty man front! LOL!)
