I Am Doing the Happy Dance

My hard drive arrived; Dell was able to walk me through the installation; I have loaded all of the drivers and software; I am good to go. Yea!

RIP Hard Drive

Due to the untimely demise of my hard drive, I will be unable to update my blog. Hopefully the new one will come in soon and Dell can walk me through the steps to install it. Until then...

Amazing Artisan- Livio de Marchi

This week's Amazing Artisan is another Italian, Livio de Marchi. Mr. de Marchi creates incredible sculptures in many different media, but my favorites of his work are his sculptures in wood. He creates detailed carvings of everyday items. His working carvings of cars are so fun to see. Mr. de Marchi also created a complete wooden carved house. The detail he put into every piece is astounding. You can see more of his art at his web site, www.liviodemarchi.com.

I was excited to find a few videos of his art on the Internet. One especially good YouTube video does not allow embedding into other sites. The URL for that video is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOdofbQ9VZs&feature=fvw. Below are a couple of videos that I can put on this blog. Have fun watching them. You will be amazed.
