Awwww, how did I miss this wee cutie..?

Sorry to hear your back is giving you grief mate. Never mind, if you are limited to the smaller stuff then thats all the more punters who can enjoy a genuine 'G'!

Love that last lil Teko (with the mokoed lips), very nice!

Hey Tama, you likee the pigee? I think he is good luck as I harvested a nice boar the day after I got him. My back is some better - lots of time at the chiro and stretching at home. The back injury sucked, but I am lucky I didn't break my back or neck (or anything else) on that last digger. It was a bad one and I was riding alone - in the middle of 3,000 acres Hopefully I don't take another one of those anytime soon.

I pulled the big Maori figure out this week and marked him up for my next session. I think I will be able to get some good progress in on him this weekend. I am excited about getting him tightened up and ready for surface carving. I have all sorts of things planned for him. I have high expectations

Pics coming this weekend.....

Hey G,

That home shelf of yours looks like it could be in any museum! Do you carve in your dreams?

I like the little pocket piggy too.

Best!

Helloha,

Finally I've felt well enough and somewhat inspired to work on one of my own carvings. I want to say thanks to each one of you who have contacted me through TC or on the "outside" to talk carving or just chat - you know who you are. I appreciate your efforts to keep me involved. Even though I haven't been carving myself, I have enjoyed watching some of you work and have enjoyed helping out where I could. Thanks.

So here is what I did today. I could only manage three hours on the big guy, but I was able to work on some problematic areas where I had been waiting to use my new smaller Flexcuts. Now that I have them worked out, I can begin cleaning up, rounding, defining, and getting ready to sand him down. After I sand, I will begin carving his surface detail. I have 8 days off coming up, and If I score early on the gators, I'll be back home digging into this guy.





























I hope you likee....

G

Your work GMAN has risen to such a level in the last year that I'm at a loss for words. Nice clean lines, very sharp. Each piece climbs another level.
How the hell do you carve in this HEAT!!
Stay Cool!!
Ray

Yes, It's about time this guy got some attention. I see you have been working on those beautiful hands, Undercutting them enough so that they look like they are resting against his stomach instead of being a Part of it. you have managed to get them very natural looking and not contrived. Not easily done there grasshopper. (Smile Smile SmIle)

Craig, Moondance, Hewey, Robin, Benella, and Benzart,

Thanks for looking and leaving a note. He's coming along. It felt nice to pick at him a bit and see some progress. It was nice having the chisels back in my hands. There were several areas on him that needed attention and some thinking time. Now that they are out of the way, I can proceed more quickly.

On another note, I received a package from JohnnyP with a most fabulous PNG Croc Horn inside. You should see this thing! Wow, what a killer carving - and you wouldn't believe how sweet it sounds. So far, I have managed 3 different pitches out of it. I couldn't be any more thrilled!!! Thanks Bubba!

I'm taking it with me on a hunt tonight and to put it in JohnnyP's words....."I'm gonna call those crocs home."

L8tr G8tr!

-G
