no previous part Part 1 of "Behind Blue Eyes" series Part 2: Hair and eyes »

Here is what I started and worked on the past week at War Eagle, in the class taught by Adina Huckins. I think I am making some progress and I am pleased with how this one is turning out. I also did several smaller heads and I think I am finally getting some of the facial planes in properly. I sent photos of this back to my family and several people noticed some resemblance to my daughter, who is a blue-eyed blond. Hence the title ( I’m also a fan of the Who!”. More to come and I plan also to post pictures of others and their work at the seminar. Thanks for looking!

I like not only the eyes but the chin and the mouth also.

Wow, you are really improving and I am anxious to see how much better your carvings will be in another year. I can see how much you have improved during the past year and I am impressed!

Mike, your work is so good and I always love to see it. What is the size of the wood that that came out of and is it basswood? Thanks

Thanks all! The wood is basswood, 4” thick, 6” wide, and 10” tall.
