Thank you all for your generous comments I look forward to seeing as many of your works of art as I can.There is so much to see and learn here.So thanks again and Edward it can take me more than a month to complete a carving because when I run into a area that I am lost Imust go over and over practice pieces because I’am learning and reading every book Jeff Phares published.

All nice! I like this one the best. Cedar is a great choice for color and the grain really fits the piece. Great job.

That’s really nice! Also, you could have used one of my nephews for the model. That looks so much like him it’s uncanny.

beautiful workmanship, but this piece really shines in the character embodied in the face – excellent portrait.

I once heard when I was just a kid—A whittler was asked—Hey how do you carve out that horse—The whittler say well son you just cut away what ain’t horse

Lizardhead, I to have heard that saying. Well the whittler was correct all we do is release what already is captured in nature!!!!!!!!
