This one of the relief carvings I made using the carving easel I displayed in my other project posting. I enjoy using one inch pine dimensional lumber from Home Depot since that is all that there is available here locally that is affordable. Plus, I like the grain pattern that comes to life when I color the carving with artist oil paints thinned with tongue oil or linseed oil.
Over the years of carving I have made wood spirits, walking sticks, cottonwood bark houses, and basswood caricatures, but find my current interest in relief carving quite enjoyable.
