25 May 10

I just got a wonderful piece of cedar in the form of a 7 foot straight and clean log. Today I'll square off the bottom so it'll stand on it's own.
I wanted to mention I have some videos on uTube under the account listed as zen867 . The Troll Carving and A Walk Around the Yard are there to view if you wish.

Adjusting the video size

I found that I could adjust the size of the video from utube by going into the embedding and changing the height and width numbers. It had been too wide and was shifted off center.

Carving A Troll

A New Troll Arrives for the Spring

At last the weather has become carve-able, and the first piece just had to be a Troll. Getting started after a long cold winter, where the garage studio was not a pleasant place to spend long hours in. Carving a Troll was a good way to start since I have a lot of flexibility, errors become "character"and Trolls are not supposed to be handsome. So he joins some of the crew that will participate in the next Halloween display. His blue coveralls set him apart from the rest of the group.

It's February

It's been cold these days and the work has suffered. I am just finishing a Merganser Duck. It's carved from pine,under-painted with aniline dyes and acrylic paints. The next step is to copper leaf it.
