New ornament carving

I spent last weekend at the Strongsville Art in Wood woodcarving show. While I was there on Saturday I drew up a new ornament pattern, sawed out the blank Saturday night, then got most of the carving done on Sunday. The piece is carved out of a circle of butternut wood, and it is of a stylized swan with its wing curved up over its head..

Finally organized!!

I spent the last three weeks buying modular furniture for my art room, putting it together, arranging, sorting all my stacks of stuff into logical compartments, etc.. The room has been an incredible mess for a long time- as in "can't see most of the floor" mess. Enough so that it depressed me to go in there instead of inspiring me. So I am thrilled with the way things look now! I have no "before" pics- too embarrassing to admit to- but here are the"after"s.
