Corduroy in clay.
Sergeant Ludlow “Supper” Sparrow’s off-site bungalow is nestled in the far east clearing of Summertime Forest.
This wire, foil, and clay birdhouse was created for the WeMake Celebrates “Put a Bird In It” auction. Along with over 70 other birdhouses, Sgt. Sparrow’s house will be donated to benefit arts and music education. More information about the event here:wemakepdx.com/wemake-celebrates.html.
Measurements for Krumpet’s horns. I think I’m going to scrap the original plan and go with something a little more serious. I’m going to start by…
Oh shit, folks. Krampus is a’coming to town!
The green screen is successfully lit!
I installed an LED into the top of the curtain structure, then covered it with a small plastic container lined with a sheet of wax paper to act as a diffuser. The (red) wires are hidden behind the curtains and run to the power source under the stage floor.
The lighting is looking pretty great so far, so hopefully it will mesh nicely with the spotlight!
"The Friends of Ann’s Butte"
About 5 years ago, my husband started a non-profit organization to keep ATVs and dirt bikes off of the local butte. The fragile desert landscape had been almost completely destroyed by high-speed tire treads, and the sounds of two-stoke engines frightened local elk, coyote, and deer away from our remote little neighborhood. After lots of hard work, the ecosystem is finally restoring itself bit by bit, and while I haven’t seen an elk all summer, their presence is evident through the tracks and trails that their migration has left.
