In the next few days I will try and post a few I have carved from this wood. For now I will share this fellow, with a face that only a mother could love. This is the first carving I did from this wood. It was a longer branch in the beginning but I decided to cut all the branches into smaller sections so I would have more to carve and experiment with. Sometimes for me less is more and the smaller pieces of wood make you work harder at coming up with an expression or facial feature that makes the carving stand out and unique. I haven't decided if I will put him on a base but I do have something in mind and will post if I go in that direction.
"Good night and may God bless"
