    Re: Tawny Owl

    Most of my paint work is a combination of mediums. Usually the animals are base coated with an acrylic with the rest being done in artist oils. In the case of the owl my normal method would be to paint it entirely white with an acrylic. I would then use artist oils mixed...

    Re: Tawny Owl

    Thanks for the kind comments. One member suggested darkening part of the background, took his advice and it did improve the piece considerably, thanks for the suggestion.

    Tawny Owl

    Just finished this one today. The owl was carved from 4/4 basswood and measures 29" x 11 1/2". The branch was painted with watercolors with the lichens being sculpted with modeling paste. The owl is painted with acrylics which was a real challenge. I usually use oils but decided to try...

    harvest rabbit

    This is a carving inspired by a painting done by one of the senior adm. on this forum. I saw that painting and just knew I had to do something along those lines. I cannot remember her name but I hope she approves if she sees this.

    The rabbit was carved from 4/4 basswood and the corn and...

    Re: Is It Ethical?

    I have been a carver for over 30 years having done shows and competitions since day one. When I have run into this problem it has always been the quality of the show meaning essentially how high the bar is placed to gain entry, price to participate, quality of the judges,...

    animal tree

    This is a recently finished piece carved in white pine. The stump was about 8' tall and about 24'" across. It started out as a high relief but with the client's input evolved into this. The vast majority was done with chainsaws with grinders to smooth and refine shapes and then some handwork...

  • Re: Torso Work in Progress

    Beautiful work and you can tell you did your homework. The old mahogany should work great, the grain should be tighter and the quality better than what you find these days. One thing that might be different is the type of mahogany, it could be Honduran, Cuban,...

  • Re: my summer project- finally done

    That is a nice project all the way around! The construction is beautiful on its own and the carving just pushes it over the edge.

    Cottontail rsabbit

    This is a new project just completed. The carving is done from basswood. The painting is a combination of acrylics and oil paint glazes. I tried to keep it simple and all earth tones. I really do have a great time carving rabbits. When I first started carving them folks thought I was crazy....I...

    odyssey project 2

    This is the second of two carvings done at the Odyssey school in Asheville, NC. I had posted the other one in the new work topic area. The students designed the piece, made clay models and then they were voted on by the school to decide the winning design.

    This tree was a tough one....

  • Re: Odyssey project

    Must admit the students were tough to deal with until the actual carving started. I think once they saw things taking shape their enthusiasm took hold. Once they started carving there were a couple that did not want to stop.

    I do hope they got something...

    Odyssey project

    I haven't posted in awhile as this project has taken almost three months to complete both stumps.

    This was a project at a local alternative school. The school had cut down 2 hickory trees and left the stumps at 9’ tall. I made a proposal to incorporate the carving of the two trees into...
