    the vision is unbelievable
    The vision is in the chaos of creation.....I have no idea what the heck I am doing....just to the next step and asking myself what is next? What does not look right, what am thinking that carving needs or does not need,....does it work? The mask of total insanity is more like it.....grabbing air and praying it works....LOL

    I'd like to change my response to :
    "This is so incredible I'm not sure what to say."
    I wish I could say the same.....I am so critical of my work it is not funny....which takes me to higher phases but it is the struggle of perfection that keeps it often .....hard work that is never quite as you like it. Hard to turn off the mind. Anyway I think the wings need to go into the plastic bags....our humidity is about 87 % today, rain forest weather ...hot humid and a sweat house weather. I am going back and start to detail dragon.....and maybe drag the base over to my shop and set it up to be carved. Still need to hollow out the base and get rid of some of that weight.

    This a before pic....of how the wings where started. This is a half of a Koa turned bowl. The tape makes the bone placement and the cut out lines which was not fun. .

    The wings ...everyone helped with a cut out ideas....another thread, I have to attach the wings to the dragon but that will be the last thing to do....so they will be later wrapped and put away until that happen. Meanwhile I continue to shape them....it is hard to take a pic of them....because of the round shape...so I just put them on a lawn chair to give you idea of what they sort of look like.
