Queen Elizabeth – My Pyrography Tribute

QUEEN ELIZABETH WAS AN ICONIC RULER Queen Elizabeth was an amazing monarch. Whether you admire her or not, there is no denying her rule was long and successful. I honestly don’t know as much about her as many others might, but I’m confident there are few alive on the planet today who don’t know who she was. Like many with access to streaming video entertainment, I watched the first season of Netflix’s The Crown series, depicting her life and reign. And while I’m sure the producers took ‘artistic liberties’ with the content, it’s clear Queen Elizabeth was an amazing woman.

Pyrography Projects – In Progress: July 13, 2021

Current Pyrography Projects I pretty much always have several pyrography projects in progress at any given time. Unless these burnings are for a paying client, I take my time on pieces, working on each as the mood strikes me. For some, I might set them aside for weeks or months before I feel like getting back to them.

But other times the stall might be due to the fact that I’m not getting something just right in the

To Do Before the End of 2022

2022 ENDS IN 101 DAYS Can you believe year 2022 is coming to a close? Dude, I’m a little bit blown away when I realize we’ll be in OCTOBER in just eleven days! WHAT?? Where has this year gone?

Supporting Other Artists Instead

I HAVE BEEN A PROFESSIONAL PYROGRAPHER FOR A LONG TIME If you’ve followed me for very long, you know that I’m not only a fiction author, but I’m also an artist. In fact, I started burning art onto wood and leather, an art form known as pyrography, long before I began my adventure into writing fiction. And I love my craft. I have had the honor of creating custom-burned pieces, surprisingly many of them memorial pieces, over the years. And those experiences have been a real joy and pleasure. But I find that, as I’m preparing to publish Book Four

Thinking About All The Things – April 5, 2021

I’ve Been Thinking About Writing Book Three: Ross and Faith a Lot Lately. Thinking a lot, but not so much doing! I’ve set a release date for Summer 2021, and I am committed to meeting that deadline. But I’ve had a hard time digging into the story. Maybe it has something to do with my overall mindset due to Covid. Or possibly the long winter months filled with Pacific Northwest gray skies and gloom have been getting to me. I’m not sure. I _have_ written some of the story. And I’m mulling it over in my head. Don’t get me
