Feeling a Little Sheepish!
These two darlings are ladies of the evening from the pasture. each is about 1-1/2" tall. Their bodies are machine carved from tupelo and their arms and legs are pieces of insulated copper wire. I have not given them names yet. They are characters in the new automata I am working on. These two have found themselves in a little bit of trouble along with many other members of the flock after a long night. The good news they are all still together. The bad news is that they all have had certain restrictions placed on them. That's enough of a hint for now. I've got to get back to work, there are a lot more sheep to make.

Oh Yeah, What Was I Doing?
Well it has been a while since the last post of Nero the Near Sighted Leopard Seal, but I have finally returned to the Antarctic to work to move Nero along. This summer has been an interesting time. Periodic bouts of COVID anxiety, oh yes, even this woodworking hermit would love to get out and about more freely. I have to admit if you are going to isolate doing it in cottage country has been a blessing. A major distraction has been restoring and old boat for my grandsons to fly around in. These things always take longer than I expect to complete. Anyway it is done now and away for winter storage.
I have also delivered my two contracted pieces to the Museum of Nature for their Planet Ice exhibit which opens September 25th. I have not seen the final setup in the display area, but I am looking forward to a visit once the exhibit opens.
Anyway the mechanics of "Penguin's Revenge" are getting closer to completion so I am adding these teaser photos for you. A few more days might result in completion so I will have more to share.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
