Take it to the mill and make planks out of it - I can only imagine the grain! People pay big $$ for sunken logs. It will give you more pieces of wood to carve too.

Wow. All your projects look really good! Congrats on the Costa Rica gig - I hope it pans out for you!!!

I need to back up a bit and just say how AWESOME the Moai scooter is. It's the beez-neez in my book. You totally nailed the "fun" aspect of that carving, right down to the expression on the moai's face. It looks like a giant wind up toy!!!!

Really dig how the speargun rack will look too.

Keep 'em coming!

hey thanks guys.

After a little bit reflection, I have decided to pass on the Costa Rica deal. As excited as I have tried to be about it, the offer they made was nothing like I expected, and I just can't afford it.

Being broke, and the lost opportunities that result from it are disappointing sometimes.

And I think I did my last art show today. They're a pain in the ass & I get sick of talking to all the "tire kickers" that they attract. I'm not doing very well at this whole "artist" thing.

I think I may just need to get a regular job and be miserable like everyone else!

I have said it before and I will say it again...nothing worth having comes easy. Keep your head up and charge on. A job is a great thing to have for steady income...there is no denying that...I am certainly guilty as charged. But find something that still allows you time to express your talents and work towards your ultimate goal...don't ever settle my friend.

Sorry to hear that things are bum'n you out at the moment bro but ya just gotta keep on truck'n,
being an artist can be a pretty tough gig at times but it's the struggle which makes us who we are.
FIGHT THE POWER!

"Surf Soul Tiki & Tree Service" Heh!

There ya go!


I struggle with driving 100 Miles per day, tending to domestics at home and maybe squeezing some solace of shaping wood at some point in a given week. I feel ya man. Now get out of that funk.

well, strangely enough I woke up this morning feeling better. I've been letting a lot of this peripheral stuff affect me that I should just ignore.

So I'm going back to work this morning and noty worrying about other stuff. I barely got anything done last week, so here we go.

The pilot Moai needs to fly out of here soon, the big Davis Island piece is almost skinned & ready for the draw, and I've got 2 serious commissions to bust out. Let's see how much of that I can get done this week.

Thats the way to bounce back. Focus on the positive! If you need cash in your pocket get a part-time gig - maybe landscaping/tree service. At the least, it could be a good source of wood!

Hey PJ, glad you're not giving up, you come across idiots in every job, at least this way you get to spend more time carving...;]

ok, smoothed out the bi-plane's fuselage & cut in a cockpit...

If I get half as many laughs out of this one as I did the scooter Moai, it'll be a win.
