Snow Patterns part 1

Throughout the winter here in Montana my eye has been drawn to the different patterns the snow will make. I have been slowly trying to document this. Here is the first of a few photos picturing varying patterns.

What I would like to do in the future is find a way to take these patterns and apply them to my art work.

Still Getting snow with some sun

Yes, we are still getting snowstorms blowing through town here. But the sun then comes out and melts it all again. Where upon another storm blows in.

The first photo is a closeup of the snow during sunrise.

The second photo is in our neighborhood from Sunday, once the snow had all melted. It was just a gorgeous day. The wife and I had to go on out and soak up the rays.

More Blacksmithing work part 3

Hello everybody, long time no blog post. Sorry about that, I have just been busy with a new full time job while a coworker is on maturnity leave.

So, I am sneaking in this post this morning. I new item I have just started to do, a dragon fly. This is my second prototype of the dragon fly. It is made to actually stick in the ground in a garden. I made 4 more for Christmas presents and am starting to refine the design a little more. I have 4 more in the works, but these are going to be paper weights, with legs and all. Once I finalize those up I will post them too.
