Scherrenschnitte

One of these days I'm going to learn how to pronounce the word Scherrenschnitte. Until then I will be content with spelling it. I've mastered that.

I've been at work creating more of my own original designs. In addition to the goat cutting I did a week ago, I've added horses and dairy cows. I plan to continue this theme with pigs, sheep, ducks, chickens and maybe geese. I like the whole "farm" thing. After that (in between doing some watercolor!) I plan to design some Alaskan ones - moose, bear (I can picture a mama bear with a cub up a tree), mountain goat, caribou and polar bears.

ps. I biked again today. I'm feeling very athletic. I've only biked twice now to work, but somehow it feels like I'm getting in shape already! I'm a very optimistic person.

I really like the cow picture, the fence is a great touch!

Biking to work, good for you!

Wow, biking to work. I'm so proud of you. Keep it up ok? How far is your bike commute?

That is so funny you were working on a cow picture and here I was being chased by cows!

I like your scherrenschnitte art.
Is my goat one going to be framed?
Good for you on biking to work and stuff. I'm taking my bike to worktoday so I can get some air in the tires also maybe the wind will blow the bugs off it.

These are very nice.
I think when people put these outside they slow down traffic.
You are never sure if they are real or not so you have to slow down. Its a psychological thing.
