this woodspirit was done on cottonwood bark i found on a lake erie beach here in n.e. ohio
the bark is smooth from the water but still is very carveable.
Loren woodard is a carver i admire and this is based on his article in Carving magizine this month. his directions helped a lot in doing the eyes.
he does not have a name yet as you do not name a wood spirit until he finds a final home. then you name him and hang him in a good spot and he will protect your house from evil spirits.
enjoy . he is finished with wax.
