Big Bear

I hoping to get this one done before the Kansas City show.  It's all finished now except for the painting.  That bear claw necklace is a real snappy detail which will look great once it's painted.  I plan on threading some beads between the claws but will have to wait until it's almost completely done to do that as I carved the claws separately and will insert them once everything is painted.  I gave him some hammered brass earrings which I will leave natural with just a coat of varnish so they won't tarnish over time.

No more photos in the Gallery yet but will be once he hits the photo studio when finished.   Hope you like him so far.

Being an equal opportunity carver I'm going to have to switch over to Cowboys as those Redskins (can I say that?) are taking over the shop and gallery.

  1. Great carving and will be even more so once the color and details are added. Really like the bear claw necklace. Bet this one won't last long in your studio or at a carving show.
