The Wonder of Details
The longer I looked at this little setting the larger the thing seemed to get: I could actually see the Chuck wagon, the cook and the growing line of hungry wranglers. Even the aroma of coffee and baking bread was starting to float through the air. All these things were brought to life because of just a couple of small details. Sometimes we tend to forget the importance of the small things. Well, to insure that I won't forget, I'm hanging this photo over my carving station to remind me of that lesson.
I was lucky enough to meet Randy and his family this weekend up at Woolaroc. I was surprised to learn that he's only been carving for a few months. Well, if this scene is the product of just a few months I'm starting to get a little worried. Clearly, this beginner is on the right path and he's got his foot on the accelerator. Just to be safe I told him to stay south of the Red River! Only kidding. I'm really looking forward to seeing his next project as I know it will be a good one.
