Dick, these are wonderful – you must have hundreds of these carvings. Where do you display them in your house?

Wow. I was going to ask you questions about technique and where to start, and then I realized that I’m not yet ready to budget the decade or three it’d take to get to the level where I’d be happy with my output, let alone blown away with the results like I am yours.

Thanks Dan
Everytime I start any new project, it seems like I’m learning something new.

Hang in there, one chip at a time.

How long does a carving like this take you, Dick? I think I may be way to short on patience to try my hand at carving. Beautiful work.

I never keep tract of the time, but this one may have been 12 to 16 hours. You’ll notice when get involved with a carving, you forget about time. I don’t have time to watch the clock. LOL

12 hours, I couldn’t see myself ever getting this good, wouldn’t mind someone showing me how to do it though. I got to go look to see if you have any other projects posted to this site. Just beautiful work I hope you have kept alot of your pieces for yourself.

Whenever I see work like this I ask myself, how does the artist “find” the subject in the material? I imagine you must make a 2-d sketch on the flat surface of the wood?

Thanks Diane
I never sell anything, have given some as gifts, so we still have most of them.
I love your Frogs, they’re so life like. Is that watercolor?

Carving a frog is on my list. I suppose you’ve seen my other projects.

Thanks Woodspar
Whenever I see a picture that interests me in a magazine, or calendar, they go in my file pile. Now images on the internet also.
I transfer the picture with carbon paper, because I don’t draw that well, but when it comes to chiseling, I seem to get by alright.
