By Ted Grussing
… seems like I have been doing a lot of wandering from subject matter to subject matter and it is time to return to one of my favorite subjects … Great Blue Herons. So here is a shot I took of one as he was leaving the ponds to go roost in a tree … a strong banking climb out as he gained altitude and headed to the grove where many of the herons roost.
A lot of work on the ironstone opal piece with the strong blue/lavender colors today. I’m ending up carving it as there are areas of the piece that just have to go and can’t do the work on the wheels … these areas were not meant to be there. Also I’m going to use a trim saw to make two pieces out of it as it is the only way I can get the shape of the main stone I want and have a second stone that will also be worth keeping. I’ll send out a couple of photos tomorrow night.
Long day, short missive … keep breathing and enjoy the moment … that is where we are.
