Sun ‘n Spin

Ah Sunflower, weary of time,

Who countest the steps of the sun;

Seeking after that sweet golden clime

Where the traveller’s joyrney is done;

Where the Youth pined away with desire,

And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,

Arise from their graves, and aspire

Where my Sunflower wishes to go!

~ William Blake ~

Hey, so it’s been a minute, right?

It has.  But we’re all busy people, so that’s okay, right?

Of course it is.

I’ve done a couple of commissions since my last post, because art for the sake of art is great, but art for money is even better.  🙂  But I can’t post those – or I can, but I won’t, since they involve portraits of someone’s children and I’m weird about privacy on that sort of thing…

But I can totally share these!  Daddoo made a spinning wheel for Le Mumz a couple of months ago, and it’s been waiting for the cash-jobs to be finished, but now here she is!  The little sunny (roughly about 3 – 4 inches across) is an embellishment for the back side, where the whorl-knob goes, while the big sunny is the drive wheel itself (approximately 14 – 15 inches across, with only one side painted, since the drive-band will block the other side).
