The Child

For my nephew’s birthday this year I purchased some phosphorescent paints and painted him a picture of Grogou.  I painted the picture in normal paint first then added the layer of phosphorescent paint because “This is the way” to get good color and also make it shine under the black light.  The first photo is regular light the second is under the black light.

Happy Dragon

This dragon was painted on a 14 inch diamond saw blade.  The dragon is flying over islands in the sea. It has the Chinese symbol for Joy and the translation written next tot he dragon.  It was donated to a charity for their annual fundraiser.

New Year’s Dragon

This dragon was painted on a 26 inch wood saw.  It depicts a flying dragon under the New Years fireworks and has in gold lettering the Chinese characters saying Gung Chow Fa Choy the traditional New Year’s greeting.  It was sold to a collector in Indiana.

Dreams – Herb Brooks

 You know, Willie Wonka said it best: We are the makers of dreams, the dreamers of dreams. We should be dreaming. We grew up as kids having dreams, but now we’re too sophisticated as adults, as a nation. We stopped dreaming. We should always have dreams. I’m a dreamer.

Star Wars

My nephew is a big Star Wars fan so for his birthday I did a saw with the the Millennium Falcon heading towards the Death Star chased by a TIE fighter.  An X-wing was attacking the Death Star while an Imperial cruise is in the background.  He loved it.
