4,000 Hits

I started this blog in May 2012, one year ago, and it just passed 4,000 page views. Unbelievable! Thanks to all who follow or just occasionally stop by to check in. I have some great new projects in mind, so stay tuned.

Spotted Elk In Color

Here's Spotted Elk sporting his new bison robe. I had a lot of fun carving this one. I even enjoyed painting him, something I usually dread. You can add a lot of detail to a carving like this Native American. Hope you like him, and as always comments are welcome.

Spotted Elk

Finally got back to carving. This one has been sitting on my bench for awhile. It is my rendition of a Lynn Doughty carving, Charlie Red Horse. The braids were a real challenge, and I ended up carving two heads. Still have some adornments to carve and more detail to add, but almost ready for paint.

Spring Break

Well, I haven't posted any thing for awhile, I've been busy trying to get the lawn back in shape after last year's drought. Also got most of the garden planted onions, radishes, tomatoes, peppers, beans, corn and cucumbers. I did take some time to find a few morel mushrooms, good eatin'. I have a couple carving projects that have been on hold, time to get back to them. I'll post pics of them soon.
