Yellow Kaleidoscope

Yellow Kaleidoscope

I went through a kaleidoscope phase when I learned how to make them on the computer. This was one of them. They were made from whatever photo I wanted to try them on. Obviously the green in the background on this one is grass.

I drew this on the stick and then carved it out. It is now painted with gold petals except for the one falling petal which is heart shaped, painted red like a drop of blood. I will design a few more similar to this on other sticks someday because it symbolizes loss of love. yeah, I know, sappy. Of course this was pre sanding and using finishing tools. This was the rough – out I made. And the heart is broken. The crease in the heart was also redefined as I progressed.

They used to watch me write for hours, and were very good company. I made them who they are, and hopefully they are used for walking as they were meant to be. It’s sad, thinking of them being somewhere outside my realm, not knowing if they are mistreated. I hope they are admired, used properly, and handed down through generations. I built them to last and poured my heart into each and every one of them. They were my humble beginnings.
