  • So so


  • The 2 moose

    Here's a closer shot of the two moose, if you couldn't see them in the other picture.

  • 2 moose across the river

    Coming back from town yesterday I drove around to the North end of my property and spotted two moose on the pipeline right-of-way on the other side of the river.


  • Down by the riverside

    At the north edge of my property.

  • In Alaska it's autumn

    Season's greetings.

  • snowin'

    Nope it isn't snowing here yet but I'm thinking about it. Pastels on 9 by 12 inch colored card stock.


  • tools

    Casting an aluminum statue yesterday,

  • cast, still molten & smoking

    This is the sand mold the aluminum poured and still molten.

  • crucible cooling

    Melting aluminum requires heating it and the crucible around 1220° F. (660°C.), so things take a while to cool afterwards.


  • Cruclble pour handle

    I use this to hold the red hot crucible and pour the molten metal in to the mold.

  • crucible lifting tongs

    Tongs to lift the crucible out of the smelting furnace.

  • Yesterday's cast

    So! This is the result of yesterday's smelting/casting. Cast in sand using the lost foam process.


  • cast size

    Around 3 by 5 inches or 8 by 12 cm.

  • Madonna

    Not the entertainer. Pastels on 9 by 12 inch colored card stock.

    Again, I like this time of year.
