It's a bit of a trick getting all the pieces to match up once I begin pounding the curvature in. Hopefully I'll get it down and get faster so these guys are worth making. Right now I'd say $40. If I figure out the formula and get way faster- maybe less.
I've restocked the fish pond too. These are normally $45 in the gallery. $30 is good.
Also, I got an opportunity to try out a new venue. There are a couple of mountain bike races at the trail I frequent, and I'm going to set up my old show tent and sell some of my bike gear pendants. If you are looking for something different to check out, the first race is this Sat at Hillside Park in Elk River. The race starts at 9:00 a.m.
Mountain bikers tend to be a little out there, so I get to let my wacky side out with my display at this thing. Truthfully, it's way more effort to rein it in most of the time. Here is one of the tamer pretend testimonials for my booth.
So, the truth is now out. A lot of this art gig is about amusing myself, and, you know, you-- hopefully. ;)
Edit to add: Okay, a number of you don't get this picture, so I apologise for the poor quality and possibly lame humor. It's hard to see but the guy is "wearing" one of the pendants (pinned to the picture). It's changed his whole life-- even his sandwich tastes better now! Just go with it. Kind of funny right? (humor me people)
