This is carved from black cottonwood bark.Measures about 18”x3.5”x3” . I find that carving wood spirits is quicker to carve but more mentally challengeing.My mind stays so focused on the face(and making faces as I go too…my son thinks its funny to watch me) .This is actually my first sold piece ,after I started to carve.It was quite thrilling to see my pieces being appreciated!!!

Very nice , how long have you been carving for? Carving is something i always wanted to do but never did. Maybe i will give it a try now that i am retired.
