Lately, there's been a lot of Seaweed on the coast. I guess when Spring time rolls around so does the Seaweed, never really thought of it like that but I guess it's plausible.

Folley 332 Automatic Saw Retoother
Still Life
8 x 8
Oil on Panel

Sold

A late night of painting, I'm beat for sure. This is a view of my Foley 332 Automatic Saw Retoother. Not run by motor but a hand crank, going old school here. It will cut teeth into a hand saw blade. There are models of this that have the motor but this one is a hand crank which is even harder to come buy these days. One of these days I'll get it going, has some missing parts. This scene was painted under a normal 75 watt bulb and some in the distance fluorescent lighting. 

Here's a video of one being used at the Woodwright's School in Pittsboro N. C. where Roy Underhill teaches woodworking. Would love to go there some day, awesome stuff.

I plan on painting some of my vintage woodworking tools I have in the future so check back for more.

Frame Example
King of Frame: La Paz, Gold Lip

One of the local Rice Canals running through the town of Manvel, Texas. Heard there's fish in them. I've never fished in them but seen others fish off bridges and catching some. If you just have that urge to go fishing and can't get to the gulf then I guess it's better than nothing. I can remember stories of my dad's fishing tales up in East Texas. He used to fish with his uncle named Buster for bass out on his property. If you can get into some creeks that might have overflow from ponds sometimes you can get a nice bass that's lived in it and got big or hungry and real feisty. He once had a bass jump straight out of the water at least a couple feet and come splashing down and grabbing his popper bait, scared the heck out of em.

A little dreary today. Rainy and mucky but that doesn't mean those days aren't spectacular to paint because they usually are the best ones to have some fun with. This one not to far from the house with a rice canal to the right. I might paint that one some day.
