This is nice. It took not only talent but a lot of imagination as well to “see” this and to free it from the wood.
This is really a gorgeous piece that I am sure you had fun doing.

Great piece!! The detail you put into it is amazing, how long did it take you to carve this? It is so imaginative.

This is wonderful artistry. It needs to be place inside, or better yet, placed in a juried show.

Hi J. Palmer,
First off Welcome to LJ’s glad your a member.
Looking at your Bark carving makes me want to get out there and finish mine up. I found myself stuck so I stopped working on it.
I like the finish and the detail you have accomplished in this carving. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Thanks for posting
