As so often happens, I have devoted my time lately to my new toy. The addition of a smaller tip for my pyrography pen has allowed me to create more detailed images. I may have said this before, but I read that pyrography could be done on paper. The first one and the last two are done on watercolor paper. The other two are on wood. I guess I prefer the wood, partly because it is a new experience. Using paper also gives me a lot more freedom to do different sizes, but somehow it seems like cheating... or inauthentic.
Whatever, I took a couple of these downtown to the Breakwater gallery
and asked Cynthia if she would take them to sell. She said she would,
so I have been working away at images I think will appeal to
tourists.........hence the pictures of Eastport and Schoodic point. Selling these pieces would be no trauma for me. I have nothing invested in them but time. They are fun and interesting to do. I like using my drawing skills. Emotionally, though, I may as well be knitting mittens for a church sale.
