This week has gone by too quick! It's been filled with preparation for our trip to Colorado Springs to work in the Andrew Womack Ministry TV studio, and things are coming along.
I spent most of my time in front of the computer, massaging photos into giant backdrops.
Test prints of the Pike's Peak scene.
Some of the set background set images will be freestanding. These supports are in our breezeway for now, and will be loaded into a big truck for transport in a few days.
I am doing two art pieces in copper, so I've had fun experimenting with chemical patinas to get the color I want.
This blue patina is made using ammonia and salt in a sealed container. I've felt like a mad scientist....
We ended up with two of these 3'x4' copper logos (below) when the laser cutting company didn't get the first one centered. Four two-hour round trips to their location, and a new sheet of copper later....I guess now I have a back up in case something goes wrong.
The copper surface is being given a blue/green patina and will be mounted on a black panel so it will look like it is floating off the background. It is turning out really cool!
In the middle of it all, we found Flash outside his gate, happily eating the only small patch of green grass around. It took awhile for him to decide to get back inside the pasture, but eventually a bucket of breakfast cereal (Honey Bunches of Oats) did the trick.
Here's a short video of part of the fun.... you can see how sweet Flash is, huh?
Be sure and link up for a virtual round of "coffee time" with your online friends! Let's catch up!!
