Cowart's Common Room
Picture for the day

Dad made this piece recently, I love it. It's called Plane Sailing, the sail is handmade paper (although he didn't make it!) and the base is a vintage jack plane.

Art Map Argyll starts today for four days, it what the local Open Studios event is called. We're a bit worried about how busy it will be as the area is very quiet at the moment as far as tourists are concerned, gallery numbers are way down this year. I'm going to be doing some felt making demonstrating if anyone turns up!Confused If they don't then there is plenty of cake to cheer ourselves up with!

Re:
CalicoKate's Avatar Vic - would love to see you!
It's OK Cowgirl you've excused!
FN - I really do hope so Confused Sometimes dad's 'eye/s' is a little warped, but sometimes also beautiful or fun.
Will post an example...
