I started carving two years ago when we were in Texas for the winter. Had some excellent teachers. The buffalo head and maple leaves were a few of my first carvings. All done in basswood. The two tractor scenes were shallow relief carvings, woodburned and painted with acrylic paint. The antique pistol was carved in old pine and a PITA. The wood kept splitting out. The lobster was a deep relief carving, I took out more than a 1/4” of the background out. Lots of fun!
