WOW Robert...he's amazing too! You've been busy. I'm always amazed at the things you see in the metal, etc. that you use. Very creative!

Really like the gladiator & it's dh's favorite of all your creations. I drag home random metal pieces too when I see something in them. Keep trying to convince the dh we'd make a great team...he 'can' weld, but won't *sigh* Maybe I just need to light a torch under his... IN the meantime, I'll just keep admiring your art. TFS

blessings,

You have an amazing way with metal! (Other mediums too of course).
I'm amazed at how you get metal things to bend and turn.
Terrific idea to use the blue plate as the head.

TY all. Jeannespines - Never speechless, always complimentary.
Hey, digger, why not have the dh teach you to use the torch.

Robert

Soon I'll have a new camera and the picture should improve. (I'm sure you all know how difficult saving for anything is in this economy. End of political rhetoric.)

Sounds like a plan. (now why didn't I consider that?) I'd love to acquire a new skill and dh is a great teacher...more patience than I can dream of. I'm off to beg for lessons. In the meantime, I'll just keep admiring your amazing creations.

blessings & thanks,
