Photos from the iron pour

First you carve and scratch out your template out with a rusty nail.

Heating up the furnace. It will get to about 3000 degrees.

Now they are pouring the molten iron into the molds.

That is my tree sizzling in the sand.

Next they pour the iron into a mold made of ice.

Pretty crazy!

None of us could believe how long the ice stayed solid. It only boiled and sizzled at the bottom.

Now we all thought there would be an explosion when they poured the ice.....check out what happens with just regular old wood.

It was like fireworks. What fun!!

Thanks to Alan Cordrey, George Miko and Timothy Hale for the photos as I forgot my camera.

Cheers, Dawn

Progress in the Studio 4/3/2009

The large fruit commission is coming along nicely. This is a commission from the San Marco show in Jacksonville. It is three 24 x 24 paintings and one 30 x 40. These will definitely living up someones kitchen.

This is a new piece I started this week. It is going to be of a large tree I photographed in Southern Louisiana. The triptych will be 48 x 68. The 2 side panels are 48 x 20 and the middle panel is 48 by 28. This is the first triptych I have done were the panels are different widths.

The Taco Mac Commission....will I ever finish? I am working on this one today and I'll set a date to finish in 2 weeks. Do you think I can do it? Let's hope so.
