    I got a new pen

    The sgt. Of motors in our county always comes by the shop asking question about finishing. He wanted to get into pen making so I helped him with venders. I gave him some wood to use and some antique ivory and he dropped by the shop today and gave me this pen. . He was able to turn 10 pens from the quilted mahogany Click image for larger version.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    That's a great looking pen. Sounds like a fair trade.
