lol. No, I didn't move back. I did live near Benzart in Florida for a short time, but then moved back to Wisconsin (not by my choice, I promise you!).
I am visiting this weekend though to see some of my old friends.

Thanks for the kind words though, they really do mean a lot to me.

Welcome back! Sorry to hear about the layoff. I'm so glad you're getting some carving in - your stuff is incredible! I love the cats - those and the hula girls you were doing are such a neat and unique style. The shark and tang are incredible too! And that Moai is looking great - if that's one of those typical Florida palms, I'm amazed at how smooth it is already!

Thank again for getting back to me on ordering one of your pendants. I have it down as my next art item to buy for sure.

I also just checked out the blog you used to keep. Man I love seeing how these pendants come together.

Your talent for the tiny is amazing! My personal fav just switched to the hula girl carrying a cocktail pendant you made last year sometime.

Awesome stuff. Be sure to post more often!

Great to see you posting again and with some AMAZING pieces too!!!! I was just admiring my finky #2 the other day, hoping that you were still carving!

I'm with everyone else drooling over that marquesian/shark pendant. You're really good at capturing the "soul" of a piece.

Welcome back and please post more!!!!

Thanks everyone!

Here is a piece I started in Florida and never completed. All I've done it give it a light sanding and added a clear coat. I'll probably add two more coats, but I'm not going to sand it anymore since I kind of like the roughness of the cuts.
It's just a tad over 35 inches tall.



There is one more big piece that I have to repair, and then it's back to some bone carving and other projects.

Later!
