This was the project that I started and mostly finished in Adina Huckins’ class at War Eagle. I have struggled, like most carvers, with female faces and I jumped at the opportunity to learn from such an accomplished artist (http://www.adinahuckins.com/index.html ). I could not be more pleased with the results! I still need to do a little more work before mounting to a base and applying a finish, but I completed the hair and eyes last night and couldn’t wait any longer. Adina is a wonderful teacher and I could not recommend her classes more strongly!
This about 10” tall from basswood and the title is from an old Bob Dylan song. My carving is based on a carving that Adina is doing of her neice. The title seemed appropriate for a young lady from Northwest Arkansas. Thanks for looking and comments and advice are always welcomed.
