“Dolly” is made from a walnut crotch piece. I wanted the white from both sides to hit in the middle like a necklace but the one side of the crotch was to large and could not get it centered. In the first photo I had left some of the original carving on. In the car you can see I took that off. It did bring the heigh down. She is in the car to take to the gallery for the June show.
The second body form is Skinny. She is the mascot for the Grand Rapids MI Breast Cancer Survivors group.

If this post gets to far out of hand I will bring it down. Being new to the Forum I would not want to get in trouble or cause problems.

Greymodel are you real. Do you find it to be tacky. This is my second and the other sold almost as fast as this. This has been in the Gallery Uptown only hours and I think it is sold. If it is too tacky I can take it down

This is pretty close to some of the stuff I do. I actually get more interest in my forms from women than from the guys. I would say you can leave this posted as is. There are those of us on theses forums who have made stuff with more “detail” than what you have going on here.

looks good, keep up the fine work!

Very nice work. It looks like the finish is cured and is not “tacky”.

Jim, Ca I guess I took it the wrong way, the finish is dry and not tacky.

Mother nature made it so it can’t be tacky … all you did is finish what she (Mother nature) started.

A nice piece of art!

I could use it to sit in my passenger side of my car so I could use the HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) commuter lanes. After all, what CHP officer would give me a ticket after seeing lady lumber sitting there!

All art should “question”
Ron, depecting Mother nature’s forms is a given since time & memorial, her Skin looks as smooth as silk,
adding a navel may have been an option ? well done
