Still trying to come up with a new video project that will appeal to a wider audience maybe than just Cowboys & Indians. Don't mind drifting off those subjects once in a while but don't like to stray too far. Have gotten lots of requests for a Cowboy Santa but that subject has been way to overdone already. Any suggestion?
Anyway, hope you like the lady and there are more photos in the Gallery.

As I mentioned earlier, while in Dayton I hoped to set down with Jim Willis to get some instruction on creating fur. Here's a short video I made while Jim did all the work. Sorry about all the noise in the background but the show was a big one with lots of people. Also, take a moment to visit Jim's website to see some excellent work. He’s one of the best! Here's that link: www.wildlife-woodcarver.com.

We had a great show this year as did most who attended. According to the hosts attendance was close to 3000 the first day and while it was down on Sunday it was still pretty crowded in there. I managed to win a few ribbons and sell a few carvings but that little piece of wood I'm holding over there made the whole trip worthwhile.

This piece is a little more realistic than my normal caricatures as I wanted to see what my normal carving techniques would look like when applied to that type of figure. I think she looks pretty good. When finished she will have an Elks tooth decorated dress along with the beaded strips which haven't been burned yet. She stands about 17 to 18 inches to the tip of her feather. Will also be quite a bit of painting and detail work on her so she should be a pretty striking figure.
There are a few more photos in the Gallery and your comments are welcome as always.
