    Re: Crum...this is going to hurt

    You wound up with a great piece. I think we all have a carving or two that jut fought us like the dickens to get done...I know i have, but after you struggle and cuss and fight and cuss some more and finally conquer the block, it just makes the finished carving all that much sweeter. I really like your bull rider, after seeing it I think I will go over to the shelf and throw away my bucking bull as he is a distant second in execution to yours. Take a break and then on to the next carving. Great job.

                  Great carving.Can't help but note the similarities to a Cris Hammack carving.

                    rkentmoer, there are several carvings out there similar to mine , criss has his arm and hands holding the rope a lot different than mine , and i think ( my mind not the same as it used to be lol) paul driscoll also has one like this one but his style . all i can say thanks to Lynn doughty who made videos to help me fix my mistakes and how to make spurs and rope and brackets to hold the rope. if you look close you will find a lot of simularity to several carvers. the bull was taken from a picture from the internet i google and looked up riding bulls and got hundreds of pictures , one, i used for a pattern for the carving

                              When I first saw this post I was amazed that you kept track of how many things you carved- I have no idea. then I looked at your photos and realized I might know how many I'd done if mine took that much effort. Nicely done, very detailed, good imagination.
