The Laser's Edge :: McLeod Residence 3


This was super impressive to see etched in wood.
I must say as well that the room smelled of burned wood and it was wonderful. You can see the rest of the board on the OneSevenNine Flickr Page.

Here are some fun pics from that night;

Ego drinking a beer?!
No this isn't real, he is making fun of us.

Peacock 2007

Peacock 2007, originally uploaded by OneSevenNine.

With all the snow in Seattle, I am feeling tropical.
This is one bird you don't want to stuff inside another, inside another, inside another! She ain't no Turkey!

Anyhoo, if you are an avid (or an occasional) follower of mine you know I hate peacocks with a passion. I was once knocked down and furiously flapped in the face by one when I was little... Stop laughing it's true!
So of course in celebration of my grudge for the attack, I paint them.
What can you do, they are so beautiful... I wonder if they are in fact delicious?

I hope all of your holidays are amazing, cheers!
