Jordan you are a true artist. Your painting, just like your carving, is so lifelike. I can’t tell if that scenery and fence and chain are a real picture or a painting. You amaze me. Great job.

Is this book you are creating more of a gallery type book or instructional book? Are you planning on publishing it or just selling copies here and there? I think an instructional carving book from you would be a great buy.

holy cow jordan..i should have known that when you do something its going to be spectacular…to me…if it were the lord himself who placed those horses on the canvas…i would think they were real…your attention to detail is beyond wonderful…and your ability to paint is bar none to your ability to carve…i love your talent and i love how it has added to my day…your work gives me a smile and also to stand in awe of a true master…thank you so much….grizz

Jordan, you are a man of many talents!

It’s hard to tell from the picture, so I’ll just ask: How big is this piece going to be?

I’d agree with Eric; I’d read an instructional book, or a DVD/video done by you on carving. I’m sure it would be eye-opening and enlightening.

I am glad you showed the painting in progress Jordan, otherwise, I would have just thought you took up photography :)

Wonderful work!

yah.. took a picture of a horse and blurred out some areas :)
extraordinary – again!

maybe Dremel would donate a prize for a random winner from entries in the shoe-carving challenge :D :D :D

oh and the book—a great project!

Jonathan, the painting is 11×14, I didn’t want to start with something too big but after this one I will try something possibly that I could sell – high hopes for sure.
Deb, Dremel may very well do that…only three shoe takers thus far but I still might do it.
Grizz, you had previously asked how the painting was coming along so I’m glad to show you.
But I must get onto a project for the Dremel movie, don’t know what yet.
Thanks people, don’t worry I’m not going to quit carving for painting….then again…oh, who knows, but canvases are sure a lot less heavy!

Looks like two hundred years from now they will be talking about that great artist Jordan. I talk about him to my friends now.

Golly Gee, what else can you do masterfully? If you were to take up quilting I would not be surprised if you took best in show! I am truly amazed with your talent. I think your parents mis-named you, they should have named you Michaelangelo! Or is that your middle name???
