Hi all, I haven’t posted in a while, so I wanted to get something up to start the ball rolling for the rest of 2018. I have been busy making rocking horses and horse carvings, and am excited to be participating in a show at the Grovewood Gallery this fall. The theme is animals in art, so it is a perfect fit for me! Look for more sculptural pieces rather than rocking horses, and maybe a few other animals besides horses as well.
I hope to post a bit more regularly in the future. I often think of things while I work that would be great to post, sometimes woodworking tips, like using Pam cooking spray to improve the life of my bandsaw blades, or how I thought I broke my planer by not oiling it. Or other times more philosophical thoughts, like how it seems many woodworkers are undervalued and not able to make a living selling one of a kind art…or is that just every type of one of a kind artist?
So, you may see a variety of topics here, and maybe I will focus in on something, maybe I will stay broad. We’ll see how it goes. Thanks for reading! Oh, and here’s one of my favorite projects that I finally finished after several years working on and off. I hope you enjoy! Which reminds me, I want to write a post about trying to photograph large art…

The horses almost look alive! I can hardly wait to see your next horse as well as other creations–wherever your chisel takes you. I also look forward to your musings…..

Reading your newest post reminds me of how I appreciate your perseverance, finely honed skill and truly one of a kind art. I only wish there were two of the horses pictured here so I could purchase the second. Blessings to you as you continue your artistic journey.
