Here are the finished pieces that we have in our house as of today – the rest you can see at the SVCG show this weekend. (Click the pic if you dare, but to tell you the truth, there seems to be an issue with focus on these photos… don’t know why and need to figure it out. Bummer, because they’re really good looking pieces up-close.)
A quick note to say that Joanne won the Blue Ribbon (1st Place) in the Expert Class for her just-completed Tiger head this past weekend at the Santa Maria Carving Show. This was Joanne’s first entry in Expert – waaaay cool!
Carve on, dudette 🙂
A few days ago I mentioned that, beginning last Friday, Joanne was taking a 3 day animal carving class. She showed up on our doorstep last night ~6pm, looking a little bedraggled and apparently running on adrenalin, then pulled her finished project out of her carry-bag.
There aren’t any words I can offer her that will make your viewing pleasure any better, so scroll down and enjoy her work. (Hint: Click the pic for the full size, fully detailed view)
Very cool, it looks beautiful, luv!
Today is the final day of a 3-day animal bust carving class Joanne is participating in. The above pics show the work in progress… note how the forehead / muzzle are “burned”… very intricate and time-consuming to do. If I recall correctly, they are going to complete the burning this morning and then paint the bust. I’ll post final pics when the project is complete (should be today / this week, but sometimes things take longer.)
Hint: Click on the pic to see the up-close, great details of her work. (Sorry the middle one’s a bit out of focus on the close-up.)
