And here's another work table escapee!  The head for this one was recarved twice before I was satisfied with the result.  What was once a piece that I just didn't like became one I sorta liked and finally into one I really like and should be a real winner once painted.  Should be lots of color on this one.  The glasses and large corncob pipe give him the appearance of an old sage of the mountains.

Just a couple more photos in the Gallery.  Hope you like this one too.  Now I've got one more to clear the table that still needs a hat so it's off to the workshop!


I've been clearing off my work table and this is one of the first results.  As I've mentioned before, each Tuesday I set down at the Grove Senior center with a few other fellas for a couple hours and in that time, between jokes, I can usually knock out a head.  Some immediately become the next character if their features or attitude grabs my attention.  Others gather dust until I can come up with some way to present them.  This one turned out pretty well and once painted should make a nice little carving.

Hope you like him.  There's just this one photo.

After The Hunt - Finished

You might be wondering where we've disappeared too for the past two months.  Well, we're still around, just overloaded with things happening around the place.  However, as you can see by the photo to the left I've gone and finished the project we were working on.  I apologize for skipping ahead but it was just something I had to do. With the success of the Dayton show and the upcoming trip to the Charlotte, NC show in February I had to move on to hopefully flesh out new pieces for that exhibit. 

I think he turned out really nice and the addition of the shield worked out just as I thought it would (personally, I think the shield is the best part of the piece!)  There are more photos in the Gallery and I'm proud to say that he sold immediately.

As always, your comments are welcome and appreciated.
