I've really been inspired by the work of Jarrod StoneDahl recently and through his blog have been inspired by bowlturner Jim Sannerud. I especially love the painted bowls and my turning is really something that I'd like to work on improving this year. I've recently turned and painted a couple.
I was quite pleased with these, and then I look at Jarrod and Jim's work and I feel depressed. I guess I just need to keep practicing. I used the egg paint that I mention in this post and have finally managed to source some natural pigment here.
