So as many may have read the dark wood base is made from wood from my grampa's barn and the branding markings on the wood are a replica of his actual brand for his cattle. So this got me thinking of grampa's barn. I remember being in that old barn as a kid up in the loft, atop bales of hay. As I thought back I began to remember all the things found in the barn and as I built my list once again I wondered, can I add to much when it comes to a bust carving? Well I will be looking into this idea in the next few days and weeks as I continue to carve and add pieces to this carving. After all whether I enter this or not it will end up on display in my home. I may have two set-ups, the one entered and the one on display at home. I will a I have posted a few pictures to show the various ways I could set-up this bust carving, take a look and see what you think.
as always happy trails
