No trip to a museum would be complete without checking out the beautiful paintings and for me at least, the framing techniques. One of my favorite artists was a Spaniard by the name of Sorolla, fantastic sense of light in his work. We also visited the Automotive Museum there and had a great lunch at the Prado restaurant. We stopped by LaJolla on the way back to check out the gallery scene there but unfortunately, they too are suffering in this economy.
Well back to work. Finished up the heirloom side table and once I photograph it for my website it'll be delivered. I did want to share this shot of it:

Other things currently going on in the shop is that the work progresses on the trio of contemporary tables and also a floor lamp for our selves. Since replacing the couches we've had since we were first married with a more contemporary style we needed to upgrade the lighting to match. Well, since we couldn't find exactly what we wanted Diane made a sketch of what she thinks would work so it's now in progress. Too early to photograph it but it'll be a combination of Baltic Birch plywood and copper. So far so good!
