The garden fountain with the stucco painting that I created with a pallet knife in the fountain arch. The house in this painting is the front of our house. The trees are the old peach trees that were in the orchid. The mountains are the Smoky Mountains that I can see from my studio. The pigments used in the stucco were the pure powder pigments used for glazes in ceramics.
My garden hat with the fountain seen through the window. Photoshop was used to create a colored pencil drawing effect.

This is a photo of the gears on Barge #4 near Dawson City, Yukon. This is a small part of the machinery that was used to dig for gold. Barge #4 was HUGE; it used NO lubricants since oil messed up the density separation. Thus, the parts squealed/squeaked so loud that it was heard miles away at Dawson City. The colors have been enhanced with additional color.
