I now include a Certificate of Authenticity with all of my wood spirit carvings :) A good friend of mine, Bob, created the certificate taking my 3d carvings and turning them into 2D images- very cool, I think.
This wild and crazy mountain man is carved in a Hemlock knot and painted with oils. This is my first go round with oil paint, and I’m pleased with the workability of the paint.
This carving is 15 1/2” tall, 5 1/2” wide and 3 1/2” thick.
This guy is listed in my shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JoshCarteArt
TO SEE ALL OF MY AVAILABLE WOOD SPIRIT CARVINGS:
” Just Get On With It Already “
I’m old, tired and sick of waiting. I’ve heard your rig-a-maroo already, and not one bit of what you say today is different from what you said yesterday. So, please do us both a favor and just get on with it already.
I love to carve expressions, full of life and detail, each being different than the last. Every piece of wood presents different opportunities.
