The latest drawing. Cactus flower. I had to press firmly with a harder wax core colored pencil (Faber Castell Goldfaber white) to get the center highlights to stand out enough.

Definitely my favorite of yours so far. With the inner glow, it's magical looking. I picture faeries and woodland creatures surrounding it. Nice work on the highlights!

I won't be racing. I'm part of the organizing body. In my notebook I called it Basmati Pale Ale because the grain bill included 4 pounds of Basmati rice. It's on the lighter side color-wise, but it had a fairly high starting gravity so it'll be on the stronger side alcohol-wise. I went easy on the bittering hops so it won't have that bite and I went easy on the finishing hops so the malty goodness and basmati rice aromatics won't get buried in a floral arrangement.

In other words, I brewed it to please a wide range of palates.

A few years ago I decided to build a giant wind chime......would have preferred to use recycled materials as much as possible, but settled for 3" steel fence post tubing suspended by chains from an old car wheel.  Each "chime" was a different length and the shortest was 3.5 feet.  Balancing all five tubes around the circumference of the wheel was quite a challenge!

I continued to build different sets from smaller diameter tubing, and found a website that described how to tune them based on all sorts of factors (material type, wall thickness, etc).  Began to accumulate new tools like pipe cutters and cable crimpers as well.  There is even a science to creating and spacing / placing the "donger" in relation to the tube chimes.

When we moved I left the original one where it was in the backyard apple tree for the new owners to enjoy.....I should have pics around somewhere.

"Cascade" (watercolor) I did this last fall. I wanted to try something a bit more "impressionistic" that wasn't based on a photo or a still-life, so this is what I thought up.

The conclusion of that drawing I'd been showing off on the hockey threads.  Done entirely on Photoshop on iPad and PC.  Took around 12 hours total (first image of this sort I've done entirely digitally.)

Carving this week. This was fun. A friend grabbed some free mulch and brought me 3 pieces she thought had potential. This was basically a stick. I had shown her the kinda chip I've been looking for and she did well except for the stick. Then I thought I can work with that. A fun challenge. about 2 hours total maybe 3

The definition of artist is and always will be in flux. It seems unkind and inaccurate to not refer to yourself as such. You are moved to create. There are varying degrees of passion, education, expertise, skill, and talent. And anyone trying to gatekeep those isn't worth listening to in the first place. So please, feel free to define that term for yourself.

I love this btw. What medium is it? Is there a story?

You are cool.

It is clay and paint I "borrowed" from one of my kids to try to encourage homework completion by demonstrating that expertise is not required to approximate an image well enough to make it decipherable.

I dry hopped 45g mosaic and 20g citra. In the past I've racked the beer, cleaned my carboy, and dropped nylon bags full of hops in the carboy then raxked back to the jug. I wanted to try something new and hopefully easier so I added the hops directly after terminal, am crashing now and will rack with a big nylon bag covering the racking cane. *fingers crossed*
Kegging would be great, but we don't have the space, and I'm not quite responsible enough to have a keg of my beer available. I have to brew in my kitchen, so the whole operation is done with 3 5gal stockpots. I'm a relative newb, but we make great beer.

Nice thread Wendigogo, I am out working on a sculpture but never ever show anything until it is is finished. I had a nightmare of hell a few weeks ago and it was me on total fark following every link on fark hour after hour. Like I tend to do. It was pure hell and scared the heck outta me. So thanks for breaking this up with a little push to get me out off the rut of fark doom scrolling and back into something productive, that for me is hard ass work, and fun, kinda. At least it is better then being lost all day on fark hell. Don't get me wrong here, I love fark but not enough to spend my whole being on it. That is hell on earth. I am on my last run of life (71 years old) and working on the idea that I can still do decent artwork. That is yet to be decided. So anyway keep up the hard work, it means a lot to many of us farkers.

I'm grinning thinking about my early brewing days. I though I was making pretty good beer so I entered a couple different brews into a home brewing contest. I got a first in one category and a third in another. Getting confirmation from seasoned judges only stoked the fires. I don't bother with recipes anymore unless I'm aiming for a particular style, and even then I won't follow them, but mostly to get an idea of the grain bill and hopping schedule.

I've moved quite a few times since I started brewing in the early nineties. One of the first things I look at when I'm considering where to live is the kitchen and whether or not I'll be able to brew there. Even with my 10 gallon system I still brew in the kitchen.

The bottom line is, if you're enjoying drinking your home brews then you're doing it right.

It took twice as long to clean the bottles than doing it alone but she got to help and it was an activity she could do together. I gave her a 64oz measuring cup with enough pbw in it and a bottle. She put the funnel in the bottle and fills the bottle, both of which she loves doing. I scrub and rinse the bottle and she puts it in the dishwasher to dry. It took a while for her to master getting a bottle neck over a dishwasher thingy, but we worked at it and was very proud when she figured it out. She showed mommy when she got home from work and was very smug about it.

I'm on a mission to make the best beer ever for me and mrs UC. She generally doesn't like beer, but here and there we find things she likes.  These last few years when breweries list what hops and grains they are using have been amazing. I've been able to drink a lot of different beers, share the best with her and we modify our recipe from that. In a couple years she's gone from gerally disliking beers to beig able to distinguish individual grains and hops in a commercial beer and we can discuss how we like or dislike it. We know it's a good brew when we'd rather drink it than anything we can buy.

Very cool! My favorite parts are the dashboard display and the invading alien critters.

I have a collection of Firefly figures, but I've never constructed a custom scene. What's involved with creating something like this? Is the name of the ship a Gilligan's Island reference to their boat?

pdxbarista: After abandoning the glove idea, this is what I ended up with:

I didn't glue them or finish the makeup. I need to make them just slightly longer for ease of application, but I might be able to use this set for the severed hand.


It's good to see you here! I love it when you share your makeup FX projects. I remember you were working on a glove, sorry it didn't work out. What will the finger covers be featured in?

ruudbob: Nice thread Wendigogo, I am out working on a sculpture but never ever show anything until it is is finished. I had a nightmare of hell a few weeks ago and it was me on total fark following every link on fark hour after hour. Like I tend to do. It was pure hell and scared the heck outta me. So thanks for breaking this up with a little push to get me out off the rut of fark doom scrolling and back into something productive, that for me is hard ass work, and fun, kinda. At least it is better then being lost all day on fark hell. Don't get me wrong here, I love fark but not enough to spend my whole being on it. That is hell on earth. I am on my last run of life (71 years old) and working on the idea that I can still do decent artwork. That is yet to be decided. So anyway keep up the hard work, it means a lot to many of us farkers.


This really warms my heart to hear, thank you. You're not alone in the doom scroll. Ugh. Even with the twist of humor, we all still get subjected to whatever is going through the news cycle. It can be demoralizing. That happened to me this weekend as well. It's good to take a break or at least take your eyes off the news. I hope you can find some peace and motivation to create- looking forward to seeing your next sculpture :)

I made Mint Black Raspberry Ice Cream starring ingredients from my backyard garden.

Odd combination, I'll admit, but it worked out surprisingly well!

It sounds delicious! I see tomatoes there... did they make it into the mix?


No, those were for distracting the toddler when he made inquiries about there being a possible mention of ice cream.

The definition of artist is and always will be in flux. It seems unkind and inaccurate to not refer to yourself as such. You are moved to create. There are varying degrees of passion, education, expertise, skill, and talent. And anyone trying to gatekeep those isn't worth listening to in the first place. So please, feel free to define that term for yourself.

I love this btw. What medium is it? Is there a story?

You are cool.

It is clay and paint I "borrowed" from one of my kids to try to encourage homework completion by demonstrating that expertise is not required to approximate an image well enough to make it decipherable.

Snapped a pic of it on my desk and used a PS app to delete the desk before posting

That is awesome! Was your kid discouraged initially, thinking that he/she couldn't do something, just because it wasn't going to be what they thought it should be? Like photo realistic? If so, did your project work?


Yes, and yes for the assignment, but I am unable to cure the perfectionist anxiety.

It can be challenging, for sure. I hope your kiddo is able to work through it!

Gracias, mate.  Creating this bastard was a supreme effort for my skills and patience, truth be.  I started with a yard drain basin I cut up and around to create a basic tube; then laid down an ass-load of styrene sheets to build up the exterior paneling.  All told it took about 4months to build.

For your needs, you're better off just buying one of the diorama displays for 12th-scale figures, of which BigBadToyStore has plenty of options to looksee:

For Firefly, these two 'Abandoned Factory' sets would be the ones I'd look at; although the Fext System Street scene options might work as well.

Uchiha_Cycliste: TwowheelinTim: And here is the beer itself. Well, you can't see it because the nature of the stainless steel fermenter, but it's in there. Trust me.

That is a craft, good call.
I just started cold crashing today.

I craft beer as well.

The brewery (a work in progress). I've since added sight glasses to the HLT and BK, and thermometer to the BK. The propane burner is not used, I've gone all electric. I've since removed it.

Three taps, but can't brew fast enough to keep three beers on tap for very long.

The conclusion of that drawing I'd been showing off on the hockey threads.  Done entirely on Photoshop on iPad and PC.  Took around 12 hours total (first image of this sort I've done entirely digitally.)


Nice! I like the mood and setting. What's the story behind it? What's your usual medium of choice?
