The END is in sight...

After almost two weeks straight of making bars, I'm down to just the final few...

I've been pushing hard to finish the balance of the bar orders for the year so I can focus solely on full builds and have finally reached the eventual burn out.

My compressor blowing it's thermal fuses was the stimulus I needed to take two partial days off and focus on something totally not bike related.

My grandfather had always painted, mostly farm/western scenes on slate that he had hand hewed for each piece.  I have always felt that I pulled some of my artistic talent from him, so I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something new.

This is my first attempt at brush and canvas,  inspired by art on a pinball machine that tells the tale of a werewolf that threatens a small town: Silver Bullet.

I really learned a LOT working through the process.  There are many things I would do differently the next time to improve the quality, but it was enjoyable to casually work away at it to take my mind off of life.

Now, with the compressor rigged to work for now, back to more of this...
