Bow tie, anyone? With some leftover 23.75 Kt gold leaf from the St. Luke's sign, John made this logo, perfect for adding a little shine to that special auto shop, garage or man cave. He gave it to our friends Mitch and John (pictured) at Sounds of Speed. We're giving them a shout out here because they've been great to work with. They treat John's '66 El Camino like it was their own car, and she's running great because of that. Thanks, guys!

The Prodigal Sign came back to us for restoration with its paint starting to peel and its gold all spent. John originally built this sign back in the late '80's. In the years since, it's color has changed back and forth from red to blue as other sign professionals - most recently, the venerable local sign painter Rey Giese - have had their way with it. And while we didn't throw a feast, we celebrated having John's sign back by giving it the full Art Works restoration treatment. John started by stripping it down to bare wood and repairing cracks and holes. Then we had new text blasted in. After that, John sanded and primed multiple times before applying the final coat of "Episcopal Red" as approved by church officials. We used 23.75 Kt. gold leaf for the gilding and the close-up shows how bright it is. (It's a funny optical illusion that the "St." letters look like they're raised in their close-up, when in fact they are recessed.) We gilded matching borders on two different panels listing different hours of services for the new sign, as well as on the hanging sign below which has text & borders on both sides. Installation took just over an hour, and we have two very happy church ladies. Pam Thistle, church secretary is on the left, and Suzanne Weiss on the right (with Luna) is the volunteer with whom we've been working. The late singer/songwriter Dan Fogelberg famously asked, "Are you under the power of gold?" We have to admit that, when it comes to signs, we are. And here's why. The left photo was taken in the morning right after we installed the sign. The gold is already glowing with just indirect light. The photo on the right was taken in the late afternoon in full sun and is positively electric. All that gold "glitters and shines" and is definitely eye-catching! Ear worm? You're welcome!

What's your angle? John's been busy figuring his as he built this step up into our hot tup so those poor old knees that we're there to soak in the first place don't have to work quite so hard to get us in. His chevron-shaped design is perfect for our space, much more graceful and compact than a squared-off step would be. He built the frame of 2x12, used house siding boards for the sides and redwood 2x6's for the top. He stained the whole thing with the same stain we use on the deck and siding. The steps have feet on the bottom to prevent wood-on-wood damage to the deck and can be moved whenever necessary. Another beautiful convenience, brought to us by Art Works!

We took a hike uphill behind the mountain house to see this most unusual sight - a waterfall, brought to us by the recent rains. We looked down the fire road to the left, then to the right, then walked left a ways until we came upon the water storage tank. Coming back down, we passed the mysterious wreck. Nobody we know has any idea what happened to that car so long ago. Back on the road again, John is standing where the water dips below the road and then comes out in a mini-waterfall into the creek that runs along the front of the house. We have the wonderful sound of rushing water as our home soundtrack. If we're lucky, we'll have that until mid-June, then the days will be filled with bird song and the nights with crickets. Mountain living!
