Summer's end

My little Silver Sycamore

new scroll i actually get to keep in the house

All of the scrolls I do are given away.  Except this one.

I made it for Erin.

She received her Silver Sycamore at Summer's End.  She cried... and proceeded to hunt down the King to thank him.  It was a very lovely scene.

A&S Display Pennsic 41

I was fortunate enough to have a spot at the A&S Display this year representing AEthelmearc.  I had a wonderful time.  And I was very lucky to meet some wonderful people.  Several Peers, a Queen and  many of the populace.

One comment I kept receiving was  WOW...  I don't think my stuff is WOW.. its not bad.  But many said "exquisite" and "beautiful".  I am flattered and honored to represent my Kingdom and my Barony.  HAEL YEAH!!

Home from War

I am home from the Great Pennsic War 41.  And I did some things I never thought I would.
1) I talked to a Queen
2) I taught 10 people
3) I court heralded.
4) I took a class
5) I learned a new skill

I am exhausted.  Pictures to come as soon as I find the cord for the camera.

New Project

I'll be sitting at the Pennsic A & S display this year and well, it would be nice if I had a display piece.  All my pieces have been given away.  Makes it difficult to show my work huh?  So I decided to an illumination piece only using period pigment and gold.
 Sketch of the piece.  Its about 5x7

Added in the Fish Glue

Gold Leaf.. not my favorite thing to do.  

Base layer of the painting.  I'm using Period Pigments only...  

So far, it's coming along nicely.
