I do all types of art. I like woodworking a lot. I sew, paint, draw, sculpt, you name it.
I used to have a etsy shop, but was afraid of not selling anything. I can still hear my fathers voice saying I will be a starving artist. Parents should never tell their children that.
I also chainsaw carve. I do marquetry. The woods I use are from trees where storms have taken them down.
When I lived in Florida, much of the wood came from hurricanes and also washed up on the beaches.. I thought I had some one here, my cell.
The one you see is from another artist, but I turned it to grayscale and then colored it in what I wanted. One she is wearing lavender dress and one is blue. I call her myahh.
I did this with my computer. Just paint shop pro.
I like many scenery pictures and of there are people in it, I take them out of it. I also put some people into the picture where it is impossible to be. I did one pic for a friend that was on his motorcycle and put it on the beach he loved. It's a lot of fun.

I have to go dig up a few of my woodworking pics and wood sculptures. So please bear with me.

Here are some of my woodworking things. The dolphin fish is 3 foot long. I did two others also for a resteraunt. The hog fish is from cedar. Shellac finish.
The two dolphins are marquetry ( inlaid wood ) into a velvet lined box.

Art has many forms, including poetry. Here's a poem I wrote and recently edited.


The Children’s Desperation: an Ode to Jim Morrison

Lost is the stranger’s hand
needed to lift them from the sucking mire.
They reach and grasp only darkness
in the desperate land with no guide
to lead the children out from their madness.

All the crystal ships have sailed
away and foundered, their bilges’ cargo
displaced with the icy waters of loss
leaving behind the promise,
the elaborate plans,
and the children stand within empty
gold mines that echo
of carnality and extraction.

Coming is the Roman forfeiture,
their place in time surrendered
because the lusts they embraced failed
to make them limitless and free.
Their days now wildernesses of pain,
and the children truly are insane.

The gentle wisps that gave contrast
to the blue above hinted
at the hopeful summer rain.
But they lied, these clouds that promised
the needed cleansing downpour
that never came. And now the
children are left standing bewildered,
reeking of sweat and musk frothed
from their revelry and debauched play.

Some children will return indoors easily
forgetting why they danced
under the golden sun bright in energy.
Other children will yet wander in search
of morsels to taste and sate themselves
also forgetting why they danced.
Still others now plod on with powdery dust
puffing at each footfall, having marched
into pragmatism and the gnawing
thought of their dichotomy.

Those children whose voice sang loudest,
their passion flowing from the font of their breast,
are yet left standing in sorrow
with dusty palms uplifted, scanning the horizon.
These for whom the sky seemed to turn
and the daffodil seemed to sprout and blossom.
These are the desperate ones
who still fail to believe the diseased condition
of the creation they worship,
the utterly fallen and depraved bedrock
they found themselves upon.

Reading through my books has been kind of slowing down because I've really caught the crafting bug!!! It's very fun! This also usually happens to me around Xmas time b/c I'm too cheap to buy gifts! No really! I refuse to spend money on gifts!

So here's some stuff I have been working on for the past couple of weeks!

The first item is a pet bed/carrier I made from a half-finished crochet project that I started last year. It is made of old fabric scraps from when I was on Costume Crew in high school, and I turned the scraps into yarn which I then crocheted into a giant rectangle. That rectangle was recently bent and folded around into shape and crocheted tightly into place to be what it is now! This would be ideal for a small dog, cat, or other small critters. I have no pets, so the pet bed/carrier is in search of a good home!

Here's a second legging that I made! I made one legging a year ago, and then I ran out of yarn. So, I decided to make a second legging b/c one legging by itself isn't very useful.

Now to my most recent project which I started and completed today! I crocheted a little pouch out of plastic. I ran out yarn after the legging was made, so I'm now improvising my yarn. Currently, it is plastic, and once my ball of plastic yarn that I made runs out, I'm going to make a ball of yarn from clothes I ruined beyond sending to GoodWill from when I helped out on Set Crew in high school.

If anyone wants any of the things I've made, please purple mooseage me!

I think my art comes out in many forms. I am a carpenter/cabinet maker/wood sign carver and I go by the name Practical Madman. My sign art can be seen at www.practicalmadman.com. I also play guitar and write songs, but I have never gotten very far with recording them. My wife also plays several insturments and writes songs, and together we have a play list of about 10 originals ready to record. You know how life is, we got busy and never got around to it and we hardly every play together anymore, but I can still play the guitar and make people say "Wow".

I'm not much of an artist but I do like to dabble with a drawing program called Brushes. Here's what I've created. I've used them to illustrate some of my farm flyers. The picture is of the different guavas that I'm growing.

Here is a drawing of the very first mango that my tree produced. Sadly a roof rat ate it, so I never got to taste my first mango. But at least the drawing turned out ok.

Well, this is a forum I haven't perused yet. So nice to see everyone's creativity come out in so many different ways! Myself, I love to paint. I work in watercolor. You can see my art work on my website if ya like: www.tracywandling.com

But here a few. I generally paint nature subjects - very detailed close-ups.

Tracy I seem to be following you around the forums. LOL. Your watercolors are stunning. I am off to check out your website next.

I hadn't checked out this page yet either and I am not surprised at all the beautifully creative folks we have here. I guess I am a generalist. A writer, a sometimes artist, and sometimes photographer. Also someone who needs to update the website but you can see more here in my corner of the interwebs.

Flickr is the best place to see my photos. There are lots of dogs, and water birds and hummingbirds.

For many years I have worked as an author of children's books which meant traveling to speak to kids at schools and events to promote my books. While I still have a few books to finish, I have turned more toward essays and adult non-fiction now.

And for fun I love to play around with collage. Dogs are usually one of my favorite inspirations.

Hi Susan;

You stalking me?! Thanks very much! I love that humming bird photo! I've been trying to capture the birds around here with my camera, but they are just too fast for me. I'll have to do a 'sit very still with camera in hand' session, and see if I can't get some of the little beauties. Hope you enjoy my website!

Cheers
Tracy
