Back to it Again

Where have I been? Well, I was out looking for a job to be honest. As much as I would love to admit to the contrary, sculpture has yet to pay my bills. After being downsized from job A, I am now working for job B and so far so good. That being said, I am loving the fact that I have more time in my afternoons to do what I love and weld. So, a new pecock garden stake/feeder/outdoor candle holder is ready for paint and a fish. I'm not sure what the final result will be for Mr. Fish, but I have an obscene amount of seashells that want to be windchimes. So, I leave you with pictures of the process:
This is pre paint. If you look carefully, you can see that there is a lot of discoloration at the welds and I really like the uniform look of the painted, finished peice. Besides, I weld like a drunken pirate no matter how hard I try, so the paint also cleans up my blobs if I get a little carried away.
And, Mr. Peacock:
Hm. Mr. Peacock does not want to load today. I guess you'll just have to wait until hes all done.
