    Well I'm beginning. Was busy this last year or so collecting wood from felled trees and taking some classes. Also was busy collecting chisels and building a working area in my garage. Wish me luck.

    Owing to limited space, I'm attaching a utility item I constructed on wheels for the purposes of storage and for being a big ol' easel. Rather optimistic, but what the heck. I never worked really big, but didn't because of not having a decent easel. And with them being so expensive, I just designed and made something. Not particularly pretty, but functional.

    Also built (not pictured) a good stout bench for carving. The ruddy wood shrank so bad that even though it was all nailed in good, there are huge gaps in between the slats. I can plug them, but that was my first lesson in using un-dried wood.

    Oh, I realized there was an underpainting of a tree in the photo. Was just playing around. Nothing came of it as it was going in a different direction. And beside the stool, unattached, would be a taboret for my palette and jars and brushes -- also moveable.

    Nice work area, I to also work in my double garage which is a good size, so apart for my workbench which is a fixture and my lathe many of my other machines are mobile and can be pushed out of the way when not needed.
    Look forward to seeing some of your work.
    Geoff

    The flowers have a sort of Matisse quality? Not sure about who did what in that genre, but it looks bold and sure, regardless of your memory of them. It's more about the rapport you have going with your virtuous canvas.

    And speaking of virtuosity on canvas, any of the Expressionists ain't got nuffin' on your expressionistic pic of this 'ere lass. Nifty work there, Mr Ploos.

    So here's a link to have some fun with -- a bus ride into a wacky side of town. Give it a go. Take the Ploos Boos South and East on the continent. Steer clear of certain unsavory visions mind. Some are out and out like extreme bleeding psyches (and I don't mean 'bleeding' in the British way). . . But some of the genre in the mid-range is rather exciting and super innovative. Moon River up if ya got 'em lad. . . it can be a hard ride. And the shocks on this ere transport need replacin'.
