I can’t say enough good things about Joe Cadieu and his team. If you are in the Charlotte area and have tree problems, call Cadieu Tree Service. We chose them because our landscape architect friend told us he was the only service who had the equipment to do the job. The expertise of his climber, Chris, was amazing.
As the first cut was made, the crane held the top of the tree. Chris was riding the trunk. Have you seen Dr. Strangelove? Slim Pickens riding the bomb down screaming “Yahoo”? That was Chris as the top of the tree broke loose.
At this point we could finally see the damage. There is some, mostly cosmetic to the house, except the window is still out and covered by a tarp. Outside noise is louder than you think, but the sound of the rain is wonderful.
Check it out. Not any damage to the landscape from the recovery. Amazing work. This was due to the expertise and planning for taking out the tree.
Here are some things I’ve been making:
These were made from a pattern I found on Pinterest and I cannot find the source data. I will continue to look. The coolest part of this is where the D-rings are located. There is no pressure on the neck of the dog which is critical for Jake.
This was for an online class. If you don’t know, Inktense Watercolor pencils are unlike other watercolor pencils. These pencils will put watercolor permanently onto surfaces other than paper, e.g., fabric, wood, even metal. All you do is color in whatever you want and then use a brush and plain water to activate what you drew. Cool. I extended the picture onto the sides of the canvas and then Photoshopped those onto the side of the front picture. That is why the photo looks weird.
This is an exercise which used the Inktense pencils on a wood template from Michaels. When I put the first coat on the bare wood, it was the color Mustard, the wood glowed. I am thinking about painting a small unfinished cabinet. The transparency gives it a delicate look.
