What a great start to the New Year! It was such a pleasure to finally get to see Binh Pho show how he creates his magical pieces. It was very interesting to watch him airbrush different sections of his sample panel (which will be in the Holiday Auction), then to see the magic as he pulled the Frisket off and revealed the finished Kimono. I think that everyone who attended the Demo learned from it. Binh is a very experienced demonstrator and made the day very informative for everyone.
Then on Sunday I learned, or maybe verified, how lacking my airbrush and color skills are. I think I will just stick to turning plain wood or maybe this is the indication that I need to practice a lot more. My daughter, the natural-born artist, says that if I work with colors more I can learn how to use them.
Looking forward, it will be fun to see Michael Hosaluk in February. He will be doing an all-day Demo on Sunday February 26th, so mark your calendars. I will have a signup sheet at our February meeting on the 12th. Anyone who has never seen his work should make an effort to come to the Demo. Michael is a very creative artist, in addition to being a good woodturner and demonstrator.
Stay dry and be safe.
