Wow!! Beautifully done Smokey!! Makes me feel like I am there on the beach. You certainly have talent!
Couldn't agree more. I particularly like the second one.

Re: What do you make? Show us your stuff...

I came on here to post one of my pastels, but got totally distracted by Smoky's brilliant waves.

Anyway, here is my latest effort... a mountain stream in autumn near Melchsee-Frutt; started in October last year, finally completed today after a long and bitter struggle ;-)

Re: What do you make? Show us your stuff...

Hi.. I am into painting... I paint on almost all mediums glass, paper canvas I started painting with watercolours and have recently started with acrylics using the impasto technique. I also occasionally do warli work on paper (tribal art using vegetable colours)

newest painting: "Falls at Ruine Wildenburg" (acrylic 60cm x 80cm).

This is a beautiful little hike/outing for those of you in the area of Kanton Zug, and the 800 year old ruins hidden in the forest are delightful surprise!

Re: What do you make? Show us your stuff...

A few years ago I taught myself how to knit. Gifted family members ornaments for Christmas and they were very well received. This year I am trying my hand at shawls, wool caps and scarves.. Grateful for Youtube tutorials (that I can pause repeatedly till I get a hang of a new pattern)

My bikes!

Built the steel frame from a United Bicycle Institute course (Oregon).
Did the rattle-can paint job myself - always was a sucker for flames!

what-do-you-make-show-us-your-stuff-img_1339.jpg

When I moved to Germany I didn't want to run any risks with fire, so made my second frame from bamboo and hemp

So much great stuff from this group! I used to be quite creative BC (before children) but somehow I am still waiting for that free time to re-emerge...

Re: What do you make? Show us your stuff...

Hello.

My hobby is electronics. So I make electronic devices.
Lately I've been working on a FM radio / alarm clock.

The electronic part is ready, all it needs now is a box.
I will keep me occupied during those long winter afternoons.

Huge talent! Really wonderfully done. Do you actually make the dresses yourself? Why? For selling, or just for fun? Or are they orders from clients? Excuse my questions, just find it an interesting concept ... the making and the photography.

Not as good as some of the art on here but here's mine. It's a present for my Mother In Law for supporting me through a tricky year. Hopefully she likes it!

Been playing around with some different ideas for necklaces recently... mainly crocheted but some other styles. All photographed by a very talented friend!
