Benz, Rodeo, and BK - Thanks, I'm doing well.

JohnnyP - I dunno. I've got 6 carvings in progress here now, but I don't feel much like working on any of them right now. I've been turning away commissions and sending folks on to other carvers. The commissions I have accepted are going slow. I'm hoping that changes at work will allow me to stop selling my paintings and carvings all together and I will only need to carve or paint for myself, and only when I want to. It's tough, my art business has paid all of my fun expenses for many years. I will still have to sell enough art to pay my business expenses and write off all my carving and painting gear. Right now I am planning a trip to an island off Panama where I will spend a week spearfishing and painting my gyotaku of some interesting Pacific fishes. I can write this one off and need to get it in before the fall. I'm tired and babbling.....I need sleep....

Man G.......staples and all, real pretty. It would be a cool looking thing to see on a tiki though.
Dont ya love it when they shoot the pain killer right in the cut with a big fat needle. Thats always my favorite.
Glad yer o.k., but I still love pictures like that. Yes!

Mr Dale,

Don't you know it! It took them about 20 minutes of jabbing me with needles to get it numbed out. Unfortunately, the area closest to my eye never got numb and I felt each of the last 5 staples like there was no meds there at all. Love it!

Ouch, jeez! I thought Benz had some gnarly injury photos! Take care of yourself for awhile. Relax, & enjoy your vacation, Gman. You will be back in carving form in no time.

Take care,

A-A

Yeah, thanks all, but no glory with this scar, just a reminder of how bad I can hurt myself if I am not concentrating on what I am doing.

Hey folks,

Here's a little update on the boar hog pendant. I am using some little chisels with iddy biddy working edges. I know it's hard to see, but I've removed a fair amount of wood here already. I also have another Taniwha pendant going, but I'll post pics of it later.
