Finally! With all the projects going on around our spread at the moment I actually found the time to finish this little scene. I think it turned out real well even if I did have to change a few of the original ideas I had back when I started. Some always ask how long does something like the take to finish? Well, I did the coffin about 4 years ago so it takes a while before some of these things finally take root and sprout. There are a lot more photos in the Gallery and your comments are always welcome.
On a different but sort of associated note......A recent comment was received complaining about how I show some things but never seem to finish or get back to them. A couple cases in point would be the WW2 head study and the recent Road Agent post. Well, here's the way it is and the way it will continue to be: I work at my own pace. My interests wax and wane depending on a number of things. Sometimes I'll see or think of an idea that I will think will be a great carving then completely forget about it and move along with something else. I've always wanted to do a piece with a soldier and I did that head just for a glimpse of what it might look like. Maybe someday I'll get enthused about it again but not for a while. The Road Agents head is setting partially done on my work bench but it too might have to wait while I hope to get started on the Sheepherders scene. Would really like to get that one done before the Dayton show this year. So, there you have it. The purpose of this blog is to share with those of you who are interested in what I'm doing and what I might do. No apologies...just trying to let you know how my creative process works.
Now, back to that shower leak!
