This is absolutely a great piece of carving and painting. I am just starting out in carving(less than a year).
If I can become 1/2 as good as you I will be pleased.
How big is it

THANKS, DEREK—IT’S ABOUT 10 INCHES TALL-CARVED FROM BASSWOOD,MOUNTED ON WALNUT. ONE OF THE HARDEST PIECES I’VE EVER DONE. HAVE A HARD TIME MAKING BOTH SIDES MATCH! FLOWERS ARE MUCH EAISER, THEY DON’T HAVE TO MATCH!! STICK WITH IT. A YEAR ISN’T VERY LONG. BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, YOU’LL AMAZE YOURSELF.

Good job, Rita! Don’t stress about making both sides perfectly symaetrical, nature doesn’t!
