Kim's Press

This etching press is already sold before it was finished. All the metalwork is finished and painted
and ready for final assembly and the fitting of the woodwork. Not much left to do now and work
has been resumed on several other presses of different styles as well.
It has been a busy time with also planning and designing a large mural, no time for days off. 

Designing A Mural

I have a new mural commission and designing it is done at the kitchen table. Not in the studio. The kitchen table just seems friendlier somehow.
The mural is to be painted on a walled over shop front and this will be transformed into a 1920's Grocery Store. More on this soon. Painting the wall begins next Tuesday.

Drawing Horses; Blue, the Beautiful Old Bearded Lady

Blue the 24 year old Clydesdale out at Ruthies Animal Farm is dying, she's got tumours and is listless, in pain and losing weight.  She will be put down next week and buried in the front paddock near the farmhouse.
She is not looking good health-wise but is still so beautiful.

We took a bag of carrots and spent some time with Blue and took a bunch of photos of her.

She enjoyed the visit and we shared some moments which was nice. She likes me. I'm gonna miss her.
