I will be working more on the neck and clothing collar.
Carved this one. I added a feather and also a hair tie. Used a great book “Carving the Native American Face” by Terry Kramer and also a carving by Alec Lacasse.
Marty Eddinger has taught me a lot and first got me interested in woodcarving. When he was in TN he showed me his new interest. Put a chisel in my hand. I ran it up some cedar and I was hooked on woodcarving. He has taught me, encouraged me, and helped me so much. Woodcarving has brought a lot of peace and joy in my life. Marty told me he really felt the Lord’s presence when he carved. I understand that now that I do it. It is amazing ministry to me. He and his wife have moved back to Michigan a few years ago. He lives a couple blocks from me. We carve together when we can, and we both wish it could be more. I am so grateful to Marty and his teaching and encourage Here are some of his latest. He is a pretty amazing woodcarver, friend, pastor, teacher, and one of my greatest encouragers in my life.
NOTE: 2/10/17 Marty suddenly went to be with the Lord last week. He will be so missed by so many. I will miss him more than words are able to express. I will cherish our friendship, woodcarving, and ministering together forever.
I got a chance to carve with Marty Eddinger yesterday. He is the one that introduced me to woodcarving. Hes my main woodcarving encourager. He has moved back to Michigan so we get to carve together once in awhile. He is a great teacher and an amazing carver. He is also a great friend and a pastor at our church (Compelled Church) in Temperance, MI and Toledo Ohio. He has some great carvings and continues to get better.
