Ohh, that feels soooo good….Scratch that spot again….Come on…..Oh yes, thank you!
My newest carving from a Hemlock knot that I found not too far from home. Found wood is my favorite, and
incorporating spirits into what exists is what I do :) I hope no one gets angry that I add this little tid bit, but I’d like to
let you all know that you can find my work from my signature and also on ebay. Search Josh Carte or my username is
carpcuts2. I just want to make that known :)
I carve all of my spirits using my Foredom- kinda like the tools that the dentist uses on your teeth. From large burs
and tiny smoothers, to pencil lead thin paint brushes, all of my work is carved and painted by hand. I get a real kick
out of this fella’ because he looks to be enjoying something intently. I’m just as surprised as you are by the character
that shows up in each piece of wood. I am able to control the direction of where the wood is taking me, but the wood
still holds the reigns.
