Nothing But Blue Skies.....


For this buck! He is really winding down and I am thankful for that! I am really happy with how the sky turned out. I wanted it to be simple, but pretty, and didn't want the sky to take away from the main focal point of the buck. I think I succeeded. I like the look of the straight lines and clouds. I wasn't sure where I would go with the Sky but it really went where the beads wanted to go and this is the result. As I have heard, listen and the beads will do the talking. They sure did! I am hoping to finish this page and move on to the next one. I am going to do something completely different than my other pieces. Its kind of exciting, yet scary at the same time! Take care of yourselves!

PS. For those who have asked, Maddux ran yet another fever last night. Not as high as some of the others, but it went to 105.8 which is high enough to keep me awake all night. I am functioning on about 2 hours of sleep right now! Its just like having another child to take care of. He is such a sweet boy though, I have to do what I can to help him.

Well, Mr Buck is a Work Of Art! Truely beautiful. There is so much movement and detail in your piece its amazing! I love it.

Sorry about Maddy. I wish he would go into remission and just enjoy being your baby.

On a lighter note...you have us wondering what your next page will be. Can't you give a hint?

I love how this turned out, especially the birch trees. Great details

I can't believe Maddux is still feeling so badly. Wish both of you better days soon!

Tracey - the sky is perfectly subtle. This just keeps getting better and better. The suspense is killing me to see your next piece. Congrats on the new camera! Hugs to Maddy-dog!

I've been away from blog reading for a while and imagine my delight when I clicked over to your blog and saw Mr. Buck complete!! He's great and worth the wait! But to me, it feels like no time has passed at all. Have a great day!

Wow, Mr. Buck has really come a long way since he started out as an eyeball! I am just amazed at how you can pull these works of art together with beads. I so don't have your patience! You are a true master of your craft!
