  • An Expressive Evocation

    I saw this guy on Pinterest & I didn't get the artist's name, my bad. But anyway it kind of reflexes my present feeling with all of the Covid-19 and political bickering going on.

    4"x6"x1" basswood, painted with acrylic, background iron acetate background, & a coat of Feed & Was.

    Tried the new flexible knives I just made, had to go back to the sharping stone to reduce the included angle of the edge a couple of times, it just kind of hard for me to go that far up on the blade for its edge, when the blade os only ± 0.0125" thick, but when I got it pushed back about a1/16" they definitely cut better. Keepers now .

    Anyway, C&C encouraged

                Wow! 0.0125 is a really thin blade. My thinnest one is my Allan Goodman knife and it's 0.030 in thick.

                Good job on the carving!

                      I had to look up "evocation". I thought maybe anybody that works from home by way of the internet has an e-vocation.

                      But now I can agree, it is an unequivocally expressive evocation.

                        Great job Joe. You captured the expression nicely. My only suggestion would be to have the bow tie a different color. It's close to his skin color and for a second I was trying to figure out what he was doing with his hands. Of course, that could just be my weird way brain. Nice job!

                            Looks like I was wrong on all accounts. Haha. Sorry Joe.
