  • Showy Lady Slipper

    WIP
    Outside: 10" x 14" Inches
    Inside: 6 7/8" x 10 7/8 Inches
    1" Thickness
    Basswood

    It will probably be a shallow relief and the plan is to paint it with oils as I did Jack In The Pulpit. It feels good to be carving a relief again. The pattern is from Dover Books. P1070401resize.jpg

              Thank you, Nikke I seem to enjoy relief carving flowers and animals the most. Ruts are most common this time of year sometimes hard to be creative and have the time. Think about the carvings you will do and have planned for 2017. The basswood was bought from Hieneke (spelling) they have the nicest basswood and on time delivery. They also in the past have done some special cuts for me and didn't charge for the cuts. Hope they still do....I have enough basswood to keep me carving probably for next year. hee hee....Happy New Year

                  Now Kathy! - I think you're capable of doing this in full relief ala Grinling Gibbons. LOL Oh, maybe the basswood is not 5" thick. Okay, do it your way.

                  Happy New Year. Phil

                          What a great choice Mottles. That should be a stunner when completed if it's anywhere near like I think it will be. Healthy, safe and Happy New Year.
