Hello,

Here are my first attempts at some sort of oceanic faces/masks...I've done masks before, the greenman and totem type masks.

It was a challenge for me to keep it primitive, simple, minimal. Alot of fun. I want to make more. These are experiments in finishing style and shapes.

My first one is to the left.


Also a close up of my tribute to van gogh, cedar.

Awesome stuff. How about creating a tiki piece like that Van Gogh piece? I'm thinking like a nice tropical scene with palms and a volcano, or a homage to a tiki art piece of your choice. Cool stuff.

Thanks for the kind comments... and thanks for the welcome Benzart.

Don't worry Rev. BamBoo, I'll keep the saw away from my ear...but I must admit, I did nick my big toe once. That'll teach me to carve with a dull saw in flip flops...Yikes!

Hewey, good ideas. Van Gogh masks. You know, I did a small mural of volcanos, palm trees, and water. Not in the Van Gogh style. I have an affinity for volcanos, being born near one (Mt. Pinatubo) and the celebration of the Mt. St Helens blast coincides with my birthday (may 18)...and going to the Big Island, I slept on Pele's cool downed lava rocks one night.

Love all this tropical stuff, and carving the masks, stirred a deep emotion in me (being born in a tropical place).

Welcome aboard. The Van Gogh tribute is wonderful. Van Gogh and chainsaws ---can't go wrong with that. I am assuming you have more to show us unless you are a natural and the tribute piece was your first.

If I'm not mistaken, you wrote a book called Art of Chainsaw Carving documenting chainsaw carving pioneers? Really nice work. I always appreciate you chainsaw carvers. I have a hard time just splitting a long in half. .

Looking forward to seeing more of you wonderful art.

I slabbed up a cedar log then joined them together on a plywood backing. I added the tree / bush. So it's 3 pieces of wood. The crack is where the wood shrunk apart (it was still green when I laminated it together) No problem, I'll just take a slice of wood to repair it, then carve the grain again, to hide the seam.
