One Man's Trash

Scrap wood
Moth on scrap wood
On Sunday I picked up a whole bunch of pieces of scrap wood from the trash at the carpenter's station in our construction site and Manolo looked at me like I was crazy but I had big plans for these small discarded blocks. I sanded them, gave one of the faces a layer of white acrylic and now they're my little canvases. 
They might become another man's treasure :-)

Last Batch

New Cuffs
A couple of these might make it to my shop, 
but they are mostly just gifts for family & friends.
I'm taking a long break from the pyrography tool.

New Surface

Watercolor on board
Bluebird & Opuntia
As you've probably noticed I love trying out new things. 
This morning I used an aquabord panel instead of my usual watercolor paper 
to paint a bird on a cactus. I'm still unsure if I like it as much as I do paper, but I do like that it doesn't need to be framed to be displayed. I bought a whole bunch of panels during our recent visit to the Dick Blick art store in San Diego.

Volcano Visit

Magnificent Volcano
Laguna de la Luna
Crater Lagoon
Boy & Turbo
Thistle star
Old road to the crater
View of the volcano
One of my favorite things about living in this area 
are the stunning views we have of the Xinant√©catl volcano. 
Well, this Sunday we decided to pay a visit to the dormant volcano's crater 
and it was magnificent, otherworldly & inspiring.
The last photo is one I took back in 2007 
when there was a nice cover of snow on the volcano.
