Commission is done. Now it's time to party!

Hi! It's been a while. Sorry about that...I have been trying to put all of my effort into finishing up my Tinker commission....And now......It's complete!  What a relief!

Piece #9 features furniture that the home owner, Robert Tinker made himself.  This beautiful table and chair set is all made of root-wood, that was masterfully jigsawed together. This was a tough one to do....Lots of little nooks and crannies to render.

The last piece features a chair I found in the upstairs hallway, that overlooks the study.  The amount of care and craftsmanship put into this house is amazing to me....I mean, even this seldom seen hallway has a beautifully carved fireplace!

I will be delivering the works up to Tinker this weekend so that they can be installed for the opening on April 13th. I'll be there with bells on! Hope to see you there too.

Here are the details:

Opening Reception
Friday, April 13, 2012, from 5-9pm

All 10 pieces will be on display inside the Tinker house.
Prints and greeting cards featuring my new Tinker works will be available for sale.
The works will also be on display on Saturday, from 3-9 pm in the Tinker Visitor Center.

The opening is in conjunction with Rockford's Spring Artscene, so make a night of it and see art all over town. http://www.springartscene.com/
