Conga, everything you're doing right now is gold! That Marq is lookin' mighty fine. Moais and Marqs have always been my favorite designs.

Winter's comming. Hurry up and finish before those logs freeze!

Mahalo Johnny, Ben, Finkdaddy and GMan, appreciate the good words on the Marq. Not much
new to post at this point GMan, I won't keep you waiting too long. At this point I have
returned to Serpentiki while the Marq waits in the wings. The snake coils are almost
satisfactory and I am gathering the hook knife and antiquing supplies to push this one to
completion. I think I am going to be happy with it, been studying a lot of PNG pics and
I will hopefully be able to do them justice. Should be able to show some meaningful progress
pics over the weekend.

Nice work...you have some really nice, buttery basswood up there. Here when I can get it I treat it like special reserve scotch..

thanks Basement and McTiki...gotta love that basswood. I am lucky to have an unlimited supply of
that stuff virtually in my backyard. Making some headway with Serpentiki. All carving is
done (even the snake details that you can't really see until I get them highlighted) and I have
begun the process of making it look old. Hope all goes well.


I'll get a few "non flash" shots when I am done painting, highlighting and waxing. Thanks
for checking in.
p.s.
The flash makes the dark red look pink...trust me...the color is much more subdued to the
nekkid eye.

Looking awsome Conga! I can't wait to see them finished. I love how the last two photos look like one long one.

Conga- I like your 'thinking outside of the box' thing you do with your carvings. Your stuff is 'eatin' up' with originality and creativity. I'm always looking forward to seeing what you're gonna throw at us next.

many thanks to all for your nice words!
I am sorta proud of this one Ben, probably mostly cuz it's been two months and counting. Just
highlighting the snake detail and I should be finished.
Thanks Finkdaddy, Paipo and Gap, I will get some other bar pics up to show some of the art
that I have scattered about (including quite a few from current and dormant TCers.)
Really gotta love that Basswood Buzzy. I just found out that butternut is also very easy to
carve, like Kahuna sez, "buttery." And the butternut has a spectacular grain, working on a
couple of pieces right now. Always dig your posts, what energy!
and Surf N Turf, thank you very much! We are on on branches of the same path, but sometimes
it feels pretty lonely out here. Appreciate your comments.

Conga,

Awesome accomplishment! @ 2 months working time, don't let folks tell you they want one too. lol (I have that dilema now) Beautiful carve! Need to see it outside or at least in much more intense light.

Actually Conga, I think your Snake mann looks a Lott like youu and that is Veeerry Strannngge, given its Halloween and all that stuff. How can we know you are who you say you are? You could be someone totally different under that mask which just happens to look like you.
Lets see now, HOW Arre we gonna figure this out. AAAARRR, I thinks you gots to walk the plankkk
