Hanging in the paint room, this horse was carved in a 50 year-
The very first carving I ever did (and the only chain saw carving) was in Ucluelet, BC, around 1994. Christopher, the younger of my two sons, provided the very necessary help to complete this project, a 30th birthday present for his older brother, Ryan.
Unfortunately, Jonathon got broken in a move.
Ryan, my oldest son, requested a carving of a wolf howling at the moon. It was completed and given to him as a Christmas present in 2005.
This is a mixed medium carving with the wolf standing on real rocks; tips of moss depicting trees on the mountain and acrylic medium used for the river and snow. The moon is a parabolic mirror.
A small relief carving of a cougar carved in a yew wood burl, which is very hard -
A 4” grizzly bear carved in relief in an 11” spruce burl. The bear is walking across a large rock inset into the wood. The young couple who purchased it during the Powell River Studio Tour love it!
A Christmas present for our twin granddaughters, the one on the left is carved in a large red cedar burl and the other in a relatively rare, large yellow cedar burl.
The Gentle Cobra
The lady cobra was fashioned out of found wood, so it cannot strictly be called a carving. I can tell you that I stopped counting the hours after about 100. The fair lady resides in our garden and looks just fine!
