It is remarkable how you achieved softness and crispness at the same time, with the shimmer of water streaks added through the cracks in the plank. Very evocative, very nice.

I agree with vipond33. This is smooth carving. Where does it hang….....................

It’s been sold. I don’t know where but a good percentage of what I do goes to second home owners.

Nice carving, looks very smooth, must have been a lot of painstaking hours, well worth it though.

Hi Steve. I haven’t commented on all your carvings, but I wanted to let you know how much I like them. I have also been sending your posts to my son who is an obsessive fly fisherman and fly tier. He loves Salmon fishing the most, but he also fishes trout out of the Salmon season. I got him started, but the only place I can catch fish is at the store!
