This shows you how busy I’ve been!
April 29th PAG took a field trip to Donovan Harding’s amazing woodworking shop, Monitor Millworks. He creates doors and windows the way they did them in the late 19th century. He was kind enough to share the studio and the machinery and hand tools with the gang of artisans. Wow! I sketched some onsite, finished inking at home,
then MUCH later added color (this week!).
It was impossible to sketch everything, so I chose the memorable items.
Dog greeting us and following us around was sweet.
Loved the foliage outside, including the stream.
I like this image of Donovan showing us one of the machines.
Thankfully he spent enough time for me to sketch and take some pics.
The farmland around Mount Angel is so beautiful.
I don’t feel I did justice to the inside, when Donovan was reviewing the rules
and general history of his business. For one thing, he is 8 feet tall!
