Sentiments Of A Southern Artist: "Alex & Me"

Oh my goodness friends, I just finished the BEST BOOK EVER!  "Alex & Me".  Actually I didn't read the printed version (per jacket covers), I downloaded the audio from iTunes and listened my way through this Beautiful, Heartwarming Story.

Alex (an African Grey Parrot) was famous for pioneering new avenues in avian intelligence.  I had heard so many wonderful reviews about this story, and thought I'd pass the title on in the event any might be interested.
 
I've also been enjoying time at my Soldering Bench since I posted last.  Guess you could call this my "Blue Period".  Ha ha
 
Haven't decided if I should offer these pieces as a collective threesome or just offer them separately.  I just know I'm seriously in love with the Cobalt Blues right now.
Guess I should also mention I've been designing some new Half-Doll Pieces too.  This Pierrette is one I've owned since 1992.  I've always loved the intricate features of her face.  She just has a Serene Quality to her..A Soulful Rhythm so to speak. 
I think she's magnificent.
 
I've used Decorative Solder to anchor her to a heavy crystal decanter topper.  And her dress is absolutely the sweetest..with my Signature Bow centered in front with folds of built up solder to mimic fabric.
 
Tomorrow I'll upload some more of my newest pieces, okay.  For now it's back to the studio for me.  It was fun taking a short break to say hello to all my buddies.

Thanks To Anyone Who May Have Visited Me Today!
