This past month has been some great times. I've seen a lot and been to some great places. First stop was taking my nephew back to his home in Massachusetts. It was a long drive for a 12 year old, but he endured like a pro. While in MA, I had to pleasure of going to a few galleries and over to Boston to see the wonderful collection in the Boston MFA(museum of fine arts). If you go make it a two day visit. There is so much art and so many different wings that it just is to much for one day. They even give you a two day pass with your regular ticket price. Students save a few bucks. So don't forget your I.D. While in Boston I had the pleasure of seeing a very unique and one of my favorite bands, The Knife. Check them out. But don't ever pass up a live performance by them. It was mind blowing. I then drove back to Pittsburgh, hung out for a day, and flew off to visit family in Ft. Collins, CO. Let's just say it was breathtaking from start to finish. We did some hiking, and saw some pretty cool sights. I'll be sure to keep the drooling views to a minimum. The food was almost unmatchable as well so be sure to explore all parts. Not just the mountains.
This week, I have started a commission for a wedding. The bride and groom to be have asked for a order of just over 200 pieces. It's a great opratunity that I'm both excited for, and honored to have of been asked to do. I'll be updating this post as they come along. So far I've started throwing the pieces, and hope to have half of them done by tomorrow. I'll then trim them over the weekend, and start the second half on Monday.
