OPUS X #2


The (nearly) finished product. There are still a few small spots that need painting, but the carving is complete. I have a feeling I am going to revisit this piece later and create a sister carving that I could put on the backside to allow the carving to be hung and seen from both sides. Easier said than done, but I think it would make this piece a lot more interesting. We'll see if I can find the time to get back to it.

If you look closely you can see my next three carvings in the background. If you can't tell what they are, I've got a Camacho, Cohiba(DR), and a Nat Sherman. (Yes I've been multi-tasking and VERY busy!)

These are great. I did not know that we had such a talented artist in our midst. See you later.

This one is truly my favorite of them all! I love the detail in the dots and the wrapped effect of the X! I wish you would post a picture of the completed and mounted carving :)

Obviously a lot of sweat (and blood and possibly tears?) goes into your work. Very impressive. Thanks for sharing the pics!
