Lazy "almost" summer day.

Well, I guess technically it is not summer quite yet. But it sure felt like it. Not the "hot, Hazy" days. Rather, the cool air and bright sunny skies type of day. We didn't go the beach tonight, instead we headed for the bookstore for a coffee and some browsing through magazines. Tomorrow is Cheryl's birthday, so we are planning on a trip to Grand Rapids for some adventure. I did manage to take a few pics of the wood nymph in the daylight, even though I did not have a chance to work on her this evening. She still might need a little more work. Otherwise, I decided to show off my Mule Deer in Cherry from several years ago. This is one of those "almost perfect" carvings where you just want to keep looking at it. Luckily, I don't have many of the "total disaster" carvings left. And I have never had a "totally perfect" one to brag about. Still, I like this one a lot. It's a shame I can't seem to capture the "feel" of it with just the camera. Probably is the lighting. Just the same, it has lots of movement. the Io mothcame back to visit us. Well, Another one anyway. I took him back to the safety of the woods. He was a little rougher than the last one we showed.

You really ought to do more carving in the round. Your animals are fantastic! And I agree with Lady Steel. Those tree carvings will be around for a long time, truly gracing the woods.
