Commissioned Spirit Face carved in a pine knot.
Rest in peace my dear friend! Heaven is a whole lot richer with you there,It was a honor to have met you and been able to see your amazing artwork! Thank you for making all our lives richer and fuller!
I featured this wonderful piece on my page!
Wow such amazing detail,This is so gorgeous!
If was fun carving them but I got so many orders that I just got burnt out and quite for a while! But the money was fantastic!
wow, my first thought was Dumbledore, Merlin & all those aged wizards, great work !!
Cool dude! Love it man
Thank you and the model for the carving was my X wife!
That's a great story. She must've had a wonderful smile but I'm secretly hoping she didn't have a beard.
No beard but she only had one ear, her left arm amputated, glass eye and no toes on her left foot and she went by the name of lucky!
Hmm, now that I think of it, I might have seen her on an episode of Hillbilly Handfishin'. Could that be?
No she only stared in two movie and that was back in the early 60's, one was call "The Creeping Unknown"! and the other was "They Walk Among Us"! both were very low budget, so low they didn't ever sell popcorn!
I love it
things like this scare me really badly, like those random owls or cats that people have in their houses they look like their watching you, but this is cool.
Well I am glad this doesn't scare you! Mr. Colgate likes to brush his teeth a lot, that's how he got the name!
Well it would scare me in real life, only because I always thought things like that used to come to live when you leave the room and start conversations. but this is difforent cause it's in a picture.
and I see that :3
and I see that :3
That's right, the wee folk are little fairies with wings that protect us and watch over our planet so we don't hurt it!
that's creepy ;u; but awesome ;u;... but creepy. I don't want my dolls anymore DXXXX!!
Good morning to you, I hope you have a beautiful day! Mr.C is both, I carved him about 3 years ago to sell but we became best of friends so he stuck around!
Gosh I sure can relate to that. I have a piece of sand stone I've been lugging around for ten or eleven yr.s.
It is easy to become attached to something you like!
Yes I like it.It is an old piece of sandstone curb. From a job we did in Detroit. Sadly it had some detail chipped off sliding around in the back of a friends truck.
Its the thought that counts!
Yes sir yes sir. Could you please tell me what an llama Badge is. Robin Blue Tiger gave me one. And I have no idea how to respond. Thanx. Peace.
Just tell her thank you for the llama, its a llama badge that a lot of DAers like to give to someone special for their beautiful art. You can only receive one llama from her no more, if you give her one you can never give her one again. llama badges are not.hing more then a token from another stating they like what you do! The longer you are on here you will see what they are about!
Very nice! Brings thoughts of the GreenMan of mythology. Makes the Celtic in me pleased.
I am glad to hear it put a smile on your face. Thank you so much!
Hello John. My trouble with faces is my tendency to abstract. I find the regimen of symmetry rather boring. As well as difficult to achieve with the chisel and knife. I often find myself shaping masonry nails to get a certain curve. Tends to set me off on a tangent counter productive to balance. Keep up the awesome work.
I have found myself making many of my tools from scrap pieces I find laying around! Since I am not one to sharpen by own gouges with very good results, I will make more than one of the same so I always have one ready to go when needed! Remember, beauty is in the eye of the creator!
Hello John. I also find the recycling theme more and more important. Like Ben Franklin said... I also really enjoy creating something well so I can create. Finding stone of the proper coarseness to shape for the topside of gouges can be very challenging. As far as eyes I agree I agree. Started my adventures in carving in 2000 with stone. My daughters convinced me to do some wooden works . Now I'm enjoying both media. Similarity and differences are proving rather intriguing. Really enjoy your responses. Thanks
Thank you so very much for exposing my work, I truly appreciate your interest and I feel honored to be included with the other talented artists!
Nice looks amazing
