I still have my previous job working part-time as a rural mail carrier. This other job I just picked up is part-time as well; its something I can easily fit into my week. Its a co-op of sorts, and I'm the third partner in the endeavor. There is four of us local artists involved and we have gotten together and started a small local art gallery/gift shop in Glennallen. Each individual (or couple) supplies the shop with his/her own handcrafted work to the Cabin (as we like to call it). There is one couple who makes things made out of antler - coat hangers, racks, dresser handles, key fobs, ect, Then there's another couple who makes jewelry and belt buckles with the most AMAZING animal etchings on Boydstone (I touched on Boydstone in my last post).
The shop is open Mon-Sat 9am-6pm. I work Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I've been given Thursday to utilize my time to produce stuff for the shop.
When things are slow going (it usually is when I'm working for some reason) I try to do some painting. It's hard, and I'm still trying to get accustomed to the different atmosphere. I just finished my most recent project: painting part of the sign for the roof of the cabin - fireweed and for-get-me-not flowers shown below.
I started this painting my first day there.
God bless, and ya'll have a good weekend!
