He's Back!!!
Glad the doc gave the go-ahead for more carving. Really like
the start on the latest, and I'm so envious that you can move from
start to finish so fast. Sometimes I struggle to get 15 minutes
a day of carving...drives me nuts.

Aloha BIG tiki scott, thanks much for your compliments!
Snow is a bothersome thing here in the winter, and sometimes you need to make the best of it.
I'd gladly trade you snow for palm trees any day, I've had my lifetime's fill of it!

Conga, yes, I was cleared for carving again! Very happy to be back at it.
I have a real problem putting work down until I'm finished with it.
Then I pick something else up and start cranking away on that!
Can't figure out if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

Clarita, thanks much, but the 2 weeks of idle time were driving me nuts!
So glad to get back down to creating again!

Put the finishing touches on the Marquesas Panel in the wee hours of this morning.
This was a fun piece to do, and a nice piece to get back in the swing of things.

First of all, that think just ROCKS. But what really puts it over the top for me are those wonderful little stylistic details you put into it, like the curving incisions in the nostrils and the geometric patterns between the three tiki that are soooooo typical for Marquesas carving.

Two thumbs so far up they hit the ceiling.

Aloha!

Marcus

Atomic Tiki Punk, thanks!
99% of the carving is chisels and gouges, but given the opportunity to save time and effort I'll use a few bits on the router.
Hand tools still offer the best control and precision.

surfintiki, yes, back in the saddle again!

Aweulekuula, many thanks for the compliment!
I'm a stickler for detail, and I like to stay true to the art.
I probably spend more time doing research and learning the whys of Oceania then the actual carving.
But knowing the background of the cultures helps a lot with the final outcome of the piece.
I appreciate your feedback, thanks again!

Watango, cheers to you, and thanks for the props! Good to be in action again!

Benz, thanks so much, and the doc's words were music to my ears. I'm glad the downtime went quick though, carving is such a wonderful part of everyday life and
days seems a little bit more fulfilled.
The new present from my wife has opened up a new work of carving again. Having more tools is always a good thing and it teaches you new carving techniques.

Nice to see you carving. Recovery must have gone fast. Is this an item concieved of while you were "off"?

Thanks Johnny!

Recovery went faster then I thought. But after further review before surgery, the doc said things were pretty clean cut.
Just a 3 cm incision about 1 cm deep. It healed pretty quick with a double layer of stitches.

Regarding the Marquesas Panel... it was cut out a month ago and on the stack of new work I wanted to get to soon.
An ambitious project, but I was ready for ambitious after 2 weeks off!
