Some little carvings were finished up and painted this week.
These are all small Cottonwood Bark Carvings. I put the pen in there for a size reference. I like carving these little creations because they fit nicely in my arthritic hands.
Here they are painted and sealed. I will send one off to Sam for winning the Snowstick Contest.
I never know what a hunk of wood will turn into until I start carving and let the wood speak to me. Each one is a one of a kind, no two are ever alike.
It was a beautiful day yesterday 51 F or 10 C eh! The sun was out and everything. The dogs spent much of the day outside. No squirrels in our yard today! I did a little yard clean up. My raking muscles need to be broken in slowly! If we had a perfect lawn I wouldn’t rake this time of year, but our lawn is au natural so we can get by with it.
