I am near the end of playing around in doors and have started seed sowing and potting so if you are getting fed up with B.P this in almost it.
Not a purchased model this time, this required a sheet of Marine Ply a sharp saw and a lot of paint.
We start with my original sketch
on paper

now on to the wooden cut out with hinged arm


changing colour and able to stand


A lot of paint later


Ready to help in the garden i expect Peter to muti-task after all the work I have put into him


I can just see myself sat out on the decking on a warm summer evening being served a cool drink.lol


Hope he makes you smile,next time you see him and all the others they will be in the garden
One credit due Valadel supplied the wicker basket

San both of the paintings are on Goy some where,the top one was a king Charles owned by the young lady he is painting sadly he passed away about 18 months ago.In the lower one Jamie is chasing the Umbrella in the wind.I will put them on again if you want to see them it would probably take for ever to go through blogs and pics to find them.

I will never be fed up with looking at your creations Brian! He's lovely. Glad you are starting to get back to seed sowing and garden stuff. Nice to be back out after the snow.

What a wonderful talent you have, it must be great being able to put it to work in the winter months and then enjoy your garden during spring and summer.

Stroller its all about imagination and an enquiring mind something i must have been born with.As a small child (I was an only child)not sure why! I would spend hours making farm animals with Plasticine then putting it all together on Mums tea tray,that was early 1940s only difference i now use Resins.
