|Sometimes I get asked to do the craziest stuff. This is an alligator snapping turtle shell,|
and it is about 24 inches long. The grandmother of the boy who caught it wanted to know
if I could paint on it. I said I would try...I needed to see it first. She brought it this week.
|The boy is going to Texas A&M university, and she wanted me to paint rheir logo on|
the turtle shell. So, here it is....one of the wierdest things I have ever done.
I delivered it to her today, and she was thrilled. Now it is
off to College Station to find a home on the dorm wall.
|And then I also repaired this yard stake today. I wish I had made it..it is so cute. |
I just had to screw it back together and re-inforce it to be outside in the
weather and the wind.
So, the life of this artist in a small town is certainly never dull. I also
repaired a 100 year old stained glass door this week. It's all in a day's work!!
