Watching the sunrise while walking on the beach this morning in Ponce, thinking of Randy as always, I stumbled upon these two perfect shells (Whelks). In the 42 years I have been living in this area I have never found shells like these and in this condition. I take this as a sign and truly believe Randy placed them there for me.
My latest lamp commission is inspired by Van Gogh’s Irises painting. The standing lamp is from the early 1900’s made of metal and rattan. It was quite rusty so I have taken it apart, de-rusted and painted. The rattan will be left as is. My client had the lamp and is a huge fan of Van Gogh.
Friends Michael O’Rourke and Linda Sund passed through Ponce Inlet yesterday on their catamaran Escapade. Not knowing they anchored in the same spot where Ppalu had been in the river the day before! What a great time having dinner aboard the boat and sharing memories of the past year in the Bahamas when we first met. Here they are sailing out of Ponce Inlet this morning along with a beautiful sunrise. Bon Voyage!
PPALU GOES SALING!! On her way today to Canaveral for a haul out and bottom clean and paint. A beautiful morning with Ppalu sailing away as the sun is rising over Ponce Inlet. Fishermen on the jetty, blue heron and birds having breakfast.
Trying to find a way to overcome the challenge of placing the marbles on a flat surface, hence I was leaving openings in the glass to insert the marbles last. My friend G came up with the brilliant idea of laying the window on a piece of styrofoam and scooping out rounds of styrofoam to fit the marbles with a strawberry huller. So on my morning bike ride I found the perfect size of styrofoam and it has made the project more enjoyable and less of a challenge. For most of the marbles I can just press them down into the styrofoam making a slight indentation. Thank you my friend!
