Yesterday, was such a beautiful warm Spring day that I took a break from my 2.5 year long house renovation to sit in the sun and just relax and do nothing. As is my nature, doing nothing is a hard ‘row to hoe’. I saw a small chunk of birch lying nearby (from cutting the tree down last month) and since I had just sharpened my carving knife the day before, though I would give it a quick test for sharpness. 2-1/2 hours later I was finished with my ‘rest in the sun’.... LOL …. The knife proved itself quite sharp, now I need to put another good edge on it.
This piece… an abstracted Arctic Seal is the first piece I’ve carved in about 11 months. It measures 16.5cm x 11.5cm x 11cm tall. The house will be completed towards the end of the summer and I’ll be able to focus once again on my art. Hope you all enjoy this small tidbit!
