The Last of My Tons of Books are Boxed Today



More memories found today, and the last box filled, and I'm done boxing and Photographing my 329 books.. I was wrong in the video about it weighing over 1,600 pounds estimated.. I figure each box to weigh 70 pounds and 10 boxes would make all my books weighing in at about 700 pounds.. Still a lot of weight and books. Happy 4th everyone.

Boxing my Library of Books and Memories



A day of going through my massive library of Reference Books, Anatomy Books, Books on Native American Culture and History of the West.. Some items remind me of who gave me a book, and even old love letters between my, now X-Wife and me back in 1967 to 69.. We were married in June of 1969. Even a Sailor's hat I wore in the Navy in Puerto Rico.. in 67. That Bob Hope Borrowed from me for him to wear during a USA Show he put on for the military at Roosevelt Roads Naval Base in Puerto Rico.

I'm on the Move AGAIN!!!



I went looking for a new place to live. In this small town, that is a vacation destination town, apartments are very hard to find. Most are very expensive as well.. Well I found one and will probably be moving next week. So I've been getting things boxed and put in storage the things I seldom if ever use. The new place is going to be very very small. So I need to downsize. I mentioned the NINJAFOODI in this video.. It's an amazing all in one kitchen appliances.
I am not being forced to move.. I'm moving because whenever they show the house I'm Currently in, to a potential buyer, I have to leave the house for an hour or more while they show the house...
I also am under the constant possibility that if someone buys the house and the huge property, they may want to tear down the house to build a condo or a motel... or raise my rent.. that's put me under the constant fear of having to try to find an apartment or house in a town and area that has so few and the few that are here available are very high in rental cost...
Though the new place is very small... the rent is just $50 more than what I pay now and all the utilities are paid for... Right now I have to pay all the utilities.. and that's a considerable cost each month...
The final bonus is I no longer have to water a huge lawn in the summer or cut the grass.. a two day job... All that's done by the new landlord..
The stairs scare me.. it's hard for me to go up and down them... the sleeping area, dinning area and the very small kitchen are upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs.. so will be my studio.. I'll either get in shape.. or I'll fall and die.. lol
Those are the negatives and positives.. I will have a garage that is heated and with an automatic garage door.. Believe me, when it gets to 20 below here.. that's a big plus.. I will probably have to shovel snow.. but I'll tackle that when the time comes.

I'm tentatively going to do a clay of a Northern Cheyenne Warrior. One that is a member of the Crazy Dog Society. "The societies of each tribe formed in separate bands. The Crazy Dogs being accounted as the bravest, would be found in front of all others, while the Dog Soldiers brought up the rear." Michael Bad Hand, years ago, provided a model wearing the clothing of the Crazy Dog Society. He's been giving me advice on this idea. I have 9 Instructional DVDs on how to sculpt for purchase. I have a link in the video description where you can see the 9 videos and learn how to purchase them.

Been a Year Since I Was Struck With Bell's Palsy

Scaling Feathers, and Creating a Dog Armature

You'd of found them in Indian Villages.. and companions out west in the early days. Today I started the armature.

Creating a Porcupine Quilled Strip on the Buffalo Robe



Buffalo Robes were often decorated with either paint, beads or in the case of the robe I'm re-creating, a strip of Porcupine Quills woven into a strip down the center of the robe. Porcupine quilling is an ancient Native American Art. Indian Quillwork involved softening, in boiling water, and then using natural earth dyes, then flattening the quills and weaving them onto Leather or other material.

Delivering Salt to Todd Connor's Studio and I got stuck on the Road in t...



Todd Connor needed me to come a take a look at some of the paintings he's taking to the Charlie Russell Show up in Great Falls next week.. He asked if I'd pick up a 25 pound bag of salt on the way.. his half mile long driveway had just been plowed.. I drove on it fine till i got to one little patch of ice.. then I just couldn't go up further.. He dug and dug the ice and snow, and I'd try to move and all I did was slide sideways.. Finally he was able to back me back on the road and then we backed down the road to the main road. Another couple that was visiting him and who got locked out of their car, had to have a Locksmith come out and unlock their car. The lock smith had to park his truck behind me because I was blocking him from going up to the other couple. Well they got their car unlocked.. Todd and I backed down the plowed road to the main Highway, and the couple, with all wheel drive and better tires drove us back up to Todd's so I could see his paintings.. It was a really tiring day.

Working on my New Instructional DVD - Working on The Lady's Dress and Arm



Worked on the ladies Dress and Right Arm today. I gave up on the two GoPro Cameras. If I was a skier or a surfer, or dirt biker.. they'd be awesome.. but stationary, and videoing me sculpting. Quality is there but the way the videos are recorded on the Memory Card was Wacky as all get out.. My Canon SX30 IS cameras have served me well for almost 8 years. I only had to replace one of them. So I'm back to them.. I'll use the GoPros.. but not in my Studio.. I wasted almost a week trying to make them work...
