Your latest is top notch. You chose to do a difficult carve with the spear. Another Conga north woods masterpiece.

Is that a tinge of green I see in your grass?????

Thanks for visiting Ben and Johnny. Ben, it looks like I won't have
to move in with you quite yet, it seems as though spring is here.
ALL of the snow is gone and the grass is starting to turn green,
finally.
Appreciate the remarks on my big "Abelam" guy Johnny. I've pretty
much finished the carving and it's time to start slinging paint.
Well, maybe after a little more detail with the hook blade.
Here's the latest from "Up Nort"





That's it for now, should take another week or so to get things
wrapped up. Thanks

the abelam is really awesome. love the idol on the tip of his sword, but what's really wonderful is the knot on the left horn of his helmet. great job.

More good chops, Conga!

This guy looks like he was a discovery deep in the jungles.

Great 3-D work!

Glad to hear Spring has arrived for you... shorts and t-shirts can't be far behind!

Conga,

It is amazing what that little bit of paint did to accentuate the carved features if his face, That is too good! I think we can let you out of your winter prison cell now.....you have earned some warm weather. Make it so....
