This is my latest work, A "Diorama" for A-1 Pizza. Which has been keeping me busy this past bit.There is already a simular one which hangs above his Pizza Oven done back in 2010. The Bubba Factory being the theme of this latest one.,with again his Children in the scene. It is a Family business, and take note of the youngest of his Children who I put front and center, his little arms reaching up trying to help, waiting for the day he can get in there with his Father and Siblings ,creating and learning the business. A piece like this is out of my norm as to what I usually do but I have enjoyed building these Dioramas so much that I have plans for another ,which will be for sale. My thoughts are still moving about in my head as to what it will be of, I am thinking on the line of Peggy's Cove or similar with Boats, wharfs, etc. etc. maybe even Mermaids. We will see as I put more thought into it. Chuck built the box for me ,it being the same size as the first Diorama for A-1 Pizza so he has the option to hang it beside the first piece. Once the box was done I sketched in all that I wanted to build and then took off from there. First the background was created then the figures were cut out and mounted ,I tried to upload these pictures in the right order but one needs to be computer smart and ,well that may not be little old me with those abilities, so bare with me and figure out by the photos how it all came to it's completion :-) The fun part was finishing it, bringing it to life you might say, I worked on it well into the evening a few nights, excited to see it come to be, as does so many pieces like my 2010 Elevator Mural, Chuck always saying, now make sure you stop at 5 PM,so as not to burn yourself out, but this is what I do and I Love what I do so I always find myself after a good Mug up sitting at my easel with a glass of wine looking over what I had done that day ,to then find my right hand reaching for a paint brush to add that one little stroke which makes the World of difference and sure enough, that is what happens and I always like the results. Today just a simple coat of varnish and tomorrow I will deliver this piece to Joey to hang and be photographed along with other inside and outside shots to add to his upcoming new Web Site. Regarding my Children's book, I was told yesterday that it is done and I will be picking it up tomorrow, I am so excited!!!it has been awhile coming, I have talked about it for so long and I soon will have it in my own little hands with plans already for something more, something new, a story yet to be told, maybe of some of the exciting adventures Chuck and I have lived in our come Sept. 17th 28 years married ,or The Story of the Sea People, wow!!! I need two or three of me, is the World ready for that many me's? Maybe not!!! I want a lap top, I have said this so many times, I need to start a lap top money jar,hmmmm..I just may do that, and save for one so I won't be tethered here in my computer closet ,able to write where the mood strikes me.They can't be that pricey these days, I must research soon regarding that.
Today we are having our from away Summer Friend's for dinner along with Family and adopted Family and fur friend's ,the day promises to be a wonderful Maritime Autumn day with good food and special company and me in the Kitchen instead of behind an easel . Wish me luck...I am making my once and hopefully still famous Seafood casserole with all kinds of trimmings and desert, Chuck usually being the cook ,today is my turn...as I said wish me luck,then again, any seafood is good sea food so I should have no problems..yum!!!
Drop back again soon and see what I am up to next.
