Snake walking sticks, Wood spirits & a Hand sculpture...

With warmer weather a few weeks away it is now time to build up the inventory that has been depleted from gift making and shows that took place over the holidays. This of course means late hours. Tonight I started a couple of projects that I think will work out wonderfully.

The first up is another version of the snake walking stick I did a while back.



Next up is a piece of cedar I have begun carving. I think this work will make one of the best walking sticks I have done thus far.



Added into the mix was the dreaded "school project"... Patrick informed me that he is working on a paper for psychology on tactile senses. He decided that he wanted to make a hand to represent the sense of touch... As we all know when it comes to school projects mom and dad usually are the ones who put the effort in... I had no problem working on this, as sculpting with clay is my preferred medium, and one that I have not worked with for far too long. I rather enjoyed making this life sized hand, it was an excellent distraction... I can't wait until its dry so that I can sand it down and see the finished piece.. I just wish I had a Kiln...

I really like the snake. Great sculpture. It looks like it is attacking. It is a frightening sculpture. If you don't want to be frightening Generic Viagra

Wow, that is a well-made hiking stick! The snake effect will scare kids, but it will surely please adults. How about the hand? How I wish I also have a talent like that. Hehe!
