Septarian nodules are rocks with crystals inside. When cut open beautiful patterns may be seen. For more information and images of the real things click here. To see the nets and views of my papercraft click here.
I have mastered Photoshop (partially). The learning curve has been steep. I have discovered the joys of coloured text, soft borders and enhanced photos. Please go to Galleries > Calendars > 2014 “The Earth … (2) Calendar (日本・Japan).
Next week I hope to bring an update on my craft book project.
At last! The long-awaited release of the Two Winskells’ musical video “Sovereign God”. To watch just click Sovereign God Video. To see the lyrics click Sovereign God Lyrics, and that will also take you to John Winskell’s music site. Enjoy!
I’ve been quite busy tweeking the Japanese instructions for my craft book with the help of my beautiful living dictionaries (wife and daughter) as well as creating and delivering sets of Christmas cards plus ornaments to a nearby Christian bookshop in Osaka. Also in Osaka I have begun teaching a new course of business English at a pharmaceutical company. The upshot is I do not have enough material ready to add to the “Galleries”. Instead, please enjoy these photos from way back in 2002, a year when the temperatures suddenly dropped, setting off a delightful display of autumn colours.
I hope to get back to the craft book next week on 23rd November.
The topic is “Weather” I originally painted 12 works for a calendar way back in 2010. Weather has been an interest of mine since childhood when I was the self-appointed family weather forecaster. Was I more accurate than the met office folk? Er… no.
I hope you enjoy these paintings (once I have coaxed Word.press’ technology to work in my favour).
