Flying ornaments are smaller ornaments that are wood burned and painted with their wings outstretched. I’ve been making a lot of them lately, and I think those people who visit our booth during the holidays will be pleased to see them.
We’ve been making everything from cardinals to red breasted nut hatches.
Red-bellied woodpeckers, both male and female, are frequent visitors to my bird feeder station. They are particularly fond of suet and raw peanuts. They are always entertaining to watch and listen to.
For instance, this little guy is a frequent visitor to my house. Whenever I put suet out, he immediately comes to visit us. He’s a gregarious friend – and quite vociferous. He’s often joined by his lady friend. She’s an equally tough little lady who takes no shit. Especially with her mate.
The starlings often try to challenge these two, but they don’t put up with it. Thankfully, the starlings have learned to give this happy couple their space.
The Rampfest in Peninsula is this Saturday, April 27. I will be demonstrating woodcarving at the Log Cabin Gallery, which is across the bridge and up the hill from downtown. Look for the sign for the Log Cabin on the North side of Rt 303 just past the Riverlight Gallery. Walk up the driveway to the gallery. I will have items for sale in the Gallery along with other local artists. I will be demonstrating from 11am to 1pm. There will be other people demonstrating and there will be music.
I will have carvings on display and for sale at The Log Cabin Gallery in Peninsula, Ohio from June 22 through July 29, 2018. Peninsula Python Day is Saturday, July 21. The shop is open Friday through Sunday 11:00 – 5:00.Monday – Thursday by appointment.
