Very good use of perspective. I admire you for how well you can chose the right type of cut to obtain shadows and depth.

Your previous “and beer” seems to suggest two hard workers that enjoy a beer after some work that
makes the beer taste better. These two tipplers seem to suggest two men who would rather drink than
work, and may be well on the way to becoming the village drunkards. The style of the carving on the
two portraits also seems quite different to me. Not criticizing, just commenting on the way I feel about
these two different type of people that live in your wonderful village. Just happy that you can make
wood show very different characters and people. Thank you for sharing.

That is so funny! Love the expressions on their faces. Your picture tells a story. Keep going in this direction.

This is another wonderful carving. I just love your work, Lidiya. :)
