He’s neither happy nor sad….He’s perpetually apathetic…Poor guy. He could really use a hug or quite possibly some antidepressants. He lives his life half-alive. He’s far past the days of extreme emotional ups and downs. He just can no longer bear another heartache. Maybe soon, things will change for him. Maybe someone will show him the way….
:) I carved this character from a piece of driftwood. I shaped him up using rotary hand tools- kind of like dentist’s tools. When I was happy with the overall shape and texture of the wood, I began painting with acrylics. I love how much depth and contrast can be achieved with just a small amount of paint. Each new face that emerges from the wood teaches me a little something. I’m blessed to be a woodcarver.
