  • Your opinion please

    I just posted a carving entitled Spirit in the basement and was kind of wondering what you guys thought about it. It doesn't have one of the better faces that I have done, but it's not a bad Gnome home. Do the two subjects go together or not? I have been thinking about combining the two and this was my first attempt. If you don't think it is a good match let me know. My wife didn't really like it and she usually is right when I mess up a carving. OK, what do you think? There are 3 views of it in the Gallery.

      Don I love your bark carvings. I do like this one because of its originality. I dont much care for the name you gave it.. How about something like 'Neighbors' instead? Bring the two together with the name. I can see a gnome sitting on the steps just visiting with the Spirit.. catching up with the forrests gossip.

        Don, I think the carving is a splendid mix. Nicely exicuted and well thought out. Tells or implies a nice little story! The name could be the problem.... though I can't offer a suggestion or alternative. I do like the carving.

          The over all carving is fantastic. If it was just the gnome house, it is about the same as others I have seen,. However, What sets this one apart from any other bark house is the face, which, if this is not one of your good ones, I envy your ability.
          Yes, this is an original and a Fantastic carving at that.
          I my carving bark, I tend to make smaller houses and several more to a bark carving. But, I really like yours and the face at the bottom is great. Rightly named also.
          To carve house like that, Maybe one of these days, I can!

            I agree with the others. Many do gnome homes or the like. What you did is different, I have not seen that before. I think it will be a matter of personal tast if you are looking to sell it.
