One of my favourite things to do in the world,
is finding something to trade.
It means giving & receiving,
with purpose, satisfaction or functionality.
Dale just traded some skills with our friend Niels.
We needed to stretch a canvas with my Dad's painting.
Dale is the most talented woodworker who does carpentry as a living. And being in love with him is not altering my perception.
Niels is a talented artist who used to stretch canvas as a living.
Dale made this box with some bamboo he had left from another project.
The maple handles are painted black except for beveled edges
"which catch the light".
It's a beauty. Niels was extremely happy.
He stretched my Dad's painting in front of us.
I was so happy to see this painting again,
it has always been a part of my life when I was growing up,
since the 80's.
Now we need to paint the frame (white?)
and find the right place for it.
