geodesic dome, watercolors and wasps

oh yeah.  We are finally building up in Lama again on the geodesic dome and lovin’ every minute of it.

the dome with open doorways

this will be the last picture where the doorways are so wide open (boo hoo).  We were going to try and leave them big and open, but the building wouldn’t support itself when we go to skin it.  Len added supports in each doorway and today we are going to work on stiffeners for the pentagons. I’ll take more photos today.

but when we do take a break this is what I want to do more of

    I’m envious, it seems so peaceful and serene. Kicking back with a brewski, being creative…..ahhhhhh, you lucky, lucky girl. Beautiful water colors!

    Your dome building is really coming along. It looks like a child’s plaything, like it might be fun to climb on…tell me…have you? :~)

    Your apple blossom painting is already beautiful. I’m sure it will be stunning when you have added your final touches of magic.

    I’ve never (since childhood) tried my hand at watercolors – I love seeing your works in progress. It amazes me that people can do such wonderful things with color.

    The geodesic dome seems to have fallen out of favor here in Texas. It was quite the thing for a while. It’s interesting – many of the older ones were built on the coast, and most are still there. The shape seems to have a certain hurricane resistance. After Ike, someone told me the ones that came down did so because of being undermined by the surge, not from the wind.
