      When we visited my sister in Albuquerque, we would walk around the among the street vendors and shops I have seen many of these, I would expect to see yours right among them, very true to style.

              Hi Tinwood my dolls tend to have bright colors...I just like them better. The Hopi and Navajo tend toward the washed colors using plant dyes. All though I have seen some colorful ones too by them. It's truly up to the carver isn't it. Thank you for your comment.

                HA, HA Merle your memory is almost correct it was my right index finger that had the run in with my Fordom burr... broke my finger. Rule...don't wear a carving glove while using your power carver. I was switching between my knife and the power just didn't take the time to remove the glove....lesson learned the hard way.
                I uploaded that Kachina for you.
                So glad to be back

                  Well done, CL! Very nice job; it is immediately recognizable. Please post pics of others as you finish them.

                    Hi Arthur, thank you very much appreciated. I don't carve Spirit Dolls all the time...I go back in forth between cottonwood bark woodspirits, mountain men and little bark houses, woodburning and relief carving. Right now I'm getting re-acquainted with my carving knives creating a santa ornament.

                      You came back with a flurry This is an interesting carving, Do you living AR? The reason I ask, it would give you the opportunity to be able to study the dolls more. One way or the other, it is a great carving, that is painted great.

                        Hi JoeB...I'm so thrilled to be back at WCI Forums seeing some wonderful carvings. Yes, I live in NW Arizona about an 1 1/2 from Flagstaff. Yes again Kachina's are very numerous in my area also there are some books that are wonderful reference images. In Phoenix there is a wonderful museum called the Heard where one can spend the day just looking at Indian Artistry. Thank you, for your nice compliment.
