Well, partly cloudy this morning, but by afternoon the sky was brilliant blue and the high temperature was around 74… 30 degrees warmer than yesterday.
I spent some of the morning pulling weeds from my garden, amazingly enough, weeds don’t stop growing just because it is raining… When I get it looking presentable, I’ll take a photo… but not yet… no, not yet!
Then this afternoon I went welding again. I am verrrrry close to being finished with my Crane and all his water grasses that he’s standing in… I even included the sun and a few rays. The border was hard and boring to do in a way, the cement floor in that shop is cracked and warped and trying to weld uneven pieces laying on a floor with variances of 3 inches got to be a tad challenging!… I need to look at it some more and see where some more support needs to be added.
My dilemma is that I really do try to give away my first attempt at a new craft, just to make the Muses happy in hopes they’ll return to me in the future for further inspiration. This one. My Welded Crane in Grass. I don’t know if I can bear to part with it!
Technically it won’t be finished until I figure out what I’m doing with it… I envision it as a section of decorative fence perhaps around my studio. Or at least a gate. But I don’t want to irritate the Muses. Does it count if I give it away to Brandon and just use it?
Next will be learning how to use the cutting torch… While just using what’s in the pile, and it is a *big* pile… I’ve already thought about cutting pieces to fit. I think I’ve worked on this Crane for about 7 or 8 hours… at 4 foot square, it’s going to take a looooong time to build a fence.
My next one might just be random design, not a picture!
I will get a photo of it tomorrow… for tonight, how about a photo of the brown horse?
