At the Cottage having fun

Well its been a fun couple of weeks here at the Cottage. I have gotten all the siding and soffets done and Mary and I have painted the entire Cottage and it looks great! See the pics below.

I have also  been working on a painting or two during the rainy bits and I have just finished "Busy Bee"

Fridays show opening and working at the gallery

Well yesterday was Gallery sitting at The Shoe Factory Art Co-op. So rather than read 

The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine book on my Kindle I brought along my latest social commentary painting about how we older workers got screwed by the creeps on Wall St. 

A few folks came by from the Clothesline Art Festival to see what was going on in the gallery. I was a nice day and it was fun painting with people about.

Work hard and get rewarded - 50 x 47 inches

The "Exposed!  The Nude Self" opening was a big hit and lots of people showed up and a good time was had by all!
Nice crowd at the opening

Back from the cottage so we could move our children. Exhausting.

Well been up to some big En plein air work while up at the cottage, got some of the bathroom done and got to do some large-scale woodworking.

First up the painting stuff.

Here is my new easel on the OUTSIDE of my studio at the cabin
6 x 4.5 feet 

Roughed in color

More work done

More detail and now its back in the home studio for finishing

Here is the start of my dining room table top. Dado and splines to hold it all together

Here is the top on the legs and I added a breadboard piece to the ends to give it a nicer finish

BTW This is the wood that I used. We had to cut down some trees to do the cabin  so I got them  turned in to planks and now I make furniture from my very own trees!
