The beautiful woodpile mosaic owls are the work of Gary Tallman, an 82-year-old Montana resident who turns the chore of stacking firewood into an art form. Over the years Tallman has learned the many colors found in various types of cordwood and uses them as his palette.
“Everybody doesn’t notice how many tones in the wood there are,” Marilyn Tallman said of her husband’s eye for the subtleties of wood. “He sees beauty in all kinds of things.”
“Generally speaking, we can find almost all the colors and tones in the woods that we harvest,” Tallman said of his woodpile mosaic. “Except for black,” he confessed. “We don’t have any ebony around here so I do color the ends of some of the black ones. But the others are pretty much just the way they come out of nature.”
Tallman’s ongoing owl theme is based on the birds who live in the trees around his home in Montana’s Little Belt Mountains. Each piece begins with a sketch drawn on graph paper. After first chopping and splitting the wood, Tallman sorts the various hues into separate piles. Then the process of stacking begins. He estimates that it takes him about 20 hours to stack one of his mosaics.
#RichKidsOfBeverlyHills marathon. Season one was funny and very *wink~wink* But season two everyone just seems really bitchy.
The way Morgan talks to her mom… :O Grrl, respect the woman who gave birth to you (and who continues to support you financially when you’re 27!!!)
Roxy making a huge deal about the hotel staff not greeting her by name when she walked in the door O_____O
It’s not really funny any more. I think it’s crossed over to that sad place.

#31 #32-I’ve never seen an up to date masterpost for my favorite spidey, the one and only, Miles Morales, and since I have all these files floating around my computer anyway I thought what the heck? I’ll make one myself. My bad if it’s already been done, but there’s really no such thing as too much promotion of this character so..Miles will also be featured in an episode of Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors that’s set to air sometime next year.If you like what you read and are able to please, please actually buy these titles! There’s no better way to show your support and the more support Miles has the more likely we are to see more of him.-*in reading order and including Age of Ultron 10 and Hunger 1-4, not all issues feature Miles but should be read anyways for context**if there is a broken link/deleted file check the original post on my blog, I may have fixed it already, but if not please let me know!

[on diversity in media] I think its social responsibility. I think it’s our responsibility to stand up and say what we want. It think if you look at television in the past two years, it’s becoming the decade of the female. Like, all these new shows with female leads. Even if you look at television, as well as cable, as well as films, there’s been a resurgence, as far as the leading woman in Hollywood, which is great. And I think we’re also at the point now…you know, it’s interesting…x
