I am trying to carve spoons, but that is trickier than I thought! I love the cherry, and the beauty of the grain and color. Here is pic of a couple and then I am working on a spirit face so and I am trading it for an ambrosia spoon from a spoon carver on instagram.
My daughter Abby is a photographer and took some pics last month of my carving studio and me carving. She is very gifted in the arts and photography is one of her many talents. Her husband does video and they run Storylines Creative Co. She is a beautiful young lady in every way. I love her spirit and heart and the fact she has dedicated her life to helping others. Here are the pics. She took some good ones.
In this guy I tried to put what I have learned into practice. Taking my time and studying the pic more than I carve. It was a fun one to do. I love this bark from Canada. I started working on this in the middle of September. I am a pastor of a larger and active multi-site church (Compelled Church), so I have little windows of time to carve. I do love carving. I am not sure if I am going to put any finish on this or not.
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.
