Here is close up.
from the blurry photo notice smile line under nose, I got a little information from rick-in-seattle, as to what he thought with it being a carature, Baggs under the eyes and raising the smile line up behind the nostrils would be more to his likings,

I agree.. i made modifications and am in the works of getting photos to show the difference.

more to come.



Although this face is only one of the 13 on this 12" carving teaching - study stick i got to the finish and need openion is it done or dose it need eyes or other work.

So i got Rick_In_seattles Openion, see above post.

bubblegum & marbles

bubblegum & marbles Posted by Picasa
From basswood:
Camera was a cheap digital but was good enough for the time,

I thought about the playground in school oh so many years ago all while carving this small scene.. just two charters but saying as much about the subject as I could in the time I made for the project,

after thoughts are , where's the pile of winnings,
where's the other marbles they are shooting at, among other things, like dirt.

better efforts will be applied in forth comming diaramas,
