    Thanks Lynn, no not too critical at all. I wish you would not worry about my feelings. I'm a big girl and I can take it. I know you are only trying to help. I do appreciate your comments very much. How else is one going to learn????? Thanks again Ginny

    Good job on the Coal Miner. I hope the painting of the body turns out as nice as the head and hat. The next two are nice but a little heavy with the sandpaper. The body of the last one could use some more work.

    The boots? Send them back to the shoe repair shop.....you can do better! If you have a pair set them on the counter to refer to. You won't be sorry!

    Hope this wasn't too critical. You know I mean it in the most constructive way.

    Joesf, Thank you so very much. I wish I had found wood carving years ago. I do enjoy it. Ginny

    Hey Ginny, I've been watching your progress since you joined the board and I am mightily impressed with your improvement. Although I am not into caricatures per se, I can see the skills employed in your pieces, so congrats and keep up the great carving.

    Excellent work there, Ginny...great detail! Lynn would be proud! I don't envy you though...I hate the painting part!

    Nice carvings, Ginny. I haven't seen you post many carvings recently, so it's nice to see what you've been up to. Lovely work as always.

    I let too much time lapse before painting my last bunch of carvings, so I plan to paint once I have two carvings in the queue. Painting five or seven carvings at a time isn't much fun for me; I prefer a shorter turn at the painting table.

    Nice work Ginny,
    only problem I see is that if you keep producing great carvings at this rate, you might have to hire a painter <grin>

    Size 7 of course, he he. If you mean the size of the wood well it is from the new whittlers magazine by woodcarver's illustrated and is 3x3x1. Ginny
