Long Robe - Native American Bust With Shield - Finished

Well, it took a while but he's finally finished.....Just in time for the Tulsa Woodcarving Show.   I'm quite pleased with the way he turned out and hope you are too.  That shield really sets him off and shows how much an extra detail can add to a piece. 

Comments welcome.

Brave Heart

Here's another one fresh off the paint table.  Wrapped in his painted robe with warpaint  on his face,  he's no doubt planning how to get his horses back from that bunch a couple mountains over.  

I never tire of Native Americans.  The opportunity to paint them is just too enjoyable.  

"Dang Rustlers!"

I finished this one up last week.  I really like to do the 3/4 style busts as a lot of detail can be squeezed in without making the figure so large. 

This Rancher is after the reprobates who have been diminishing his livestock.  He's got his noose ready and is heading to the corral to saddle up and put an end to it.  Someone's gonna get their neck stretched!

Something New Is Happening!

As most of you have probably notice by now, we are no longer posting our videos on our Vimeo hosting site.  In the future all videos will appear on Youtube.  The reason for this is that, while Youtube is free, there is no limit on the length of the videos we post. You have probably noticed, recent videos now run for 30 minutes or longer and the quality...we hope...has improved quite a bit.  In addition to this change we will continue to look for better ways to record future videos.  Just remember...I'm not a Professor and Judy is not Cecil B. DeMille so, while we try to do our best, we're far from perfect. 

Don't worry,  we will continue to keep the Vimeo library active so your access to the numerous past video projects will remain available. 

One more thing.....if you have a question about a certain aspect of carving or subject we've covered in the past, just look over at the Label section on the right side of the Blog.  That long list of words are links to posts that might answer your question.  The size of the words indicates the number of posts that are associated with each word.   If you still have a question feel free to drop me a line and I'll try to help you out.

Thank you!
