Relief and Figure carvings

Two relief panels and a few small figures.  I carve a lot of Santas but they are all packed away until Christmas. Got to paint that Indian someday.

Those look AWESOME!  I can't believe the detail you get in your relief work, they are great.  I really like the figures too, very cool!!

I appreciate your words of encouragement.  I am just a hobbyist and have taken no lessons so my carving is really pretty basic.  If you want to see the work of a true master carver, go here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grinling_Gibbons#

Nice looking carvings. :)   I've just been dabbling in relief myself.. I do like it.   Santa's are fun... you can do anything with them. :)

Thank you for sharing.

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.
