Build an Ark

Several years ago an artist friend did a painting of a rooster that I really liked. She titled it “Cockamamie”.

She knew that I was a woodworker and she had just taken a commission to paint a birdhouse that looked like an ark. Soooo…. she suggested that it might be a good idea to trade the Cockamamie painting for a plain, wooden birdhouse that looked like an ark and that she could paint for her commission.

Of course I agreed.

Here are photos of both the ark and the painting.

Maybe a photo of an ark might help housing the photos of the pairs that Tish Farrell, writer and artist on the edge, is currently featuring?

  1. I’m not sure. I never tested that. Probably a bit top heavy and no keel. With those facts in mind I’d guess, not.


  2. Ah, the joys of working with ones hands. I made a small humpback whale out of polymer clay…
    One of these days I might do more than just type away… Good to have multiple ways to hone one’s crafts… šŸ˜‰

  3. Ooo! Very fun. Do share a picture when she’s done painting it.
    (btw…I know leggings and bike shorts are more see-through than many women realize, but I thinks that gal fergot to puts on her pantaloons šŸ˜‰ Cheerful colors in your banner photo! )
