The staff of St Madeleine Sophie In Bellevue, WA asked for “paint” on Mahogany
to refresh the weekday altar.
It seemed to need more depth than could be achieved on a flat surface.
So, permission was granted to carve the wood.
It was then touched with an acrylic wash before the final stain & varnish.
Utilizing madrona, in the “whittling” of
Walking Sticks and canes.
These are pictures of a main example
(that received Second Place at WWSF 2005);
Showing the Bald Eagle bearing a banner of “Strength – Freedom –Peace” amongst storm clouds with glow-in-the-dark lightening in the cracks & crevasses.
They can be done by request for $150 - $150.
“King County Elections seeks artwork for use in training and outreach materials that illustrate
the sacred importance of voting among the disabled community. Art will be judged on

Final Project for The Principles of Dye & Dying,
At the University of Washington
An array of spun fibers: wool, cotton, silk, rayon…
To illustrate the variation of each one’s acceptance of the chosen colors.
Accented with assorted beads.
Showing our standard Washington weather. Rain.
Working with the trees in our western side of “the Green State.”
Macramé was not considered a reliable way to demonstrate the dying process, but it was successful.
It took 15 minutes of the staff picking through the rules,
to convince them to admit this jacket
in the “Calligraphy –On Other Surface” category
of the Western Washington State Fair, in Puyallup.
It received the Blue Ribbon.
Being a Lifetime Girl Scout, that was quite satisfying.
Acrylic on Denim
with an antiqued scroll effect,
It received the 2005 Blue Ribbon & Grand Champion Awards.
As you can see, the light green accent, on both jackets, glows in the dark.
It is done with ©Golden Acrylic’s Phosphorescent Green...
a very entertaining tone.
