Less is More

After finishing the little mother, I laid her down against a flat surface to see how much wood was removed.
Not much!.
That's the trick in carving, waste as little as possible,
conserving energy (Mine!) to get the most out of the mateial.

beautiful piece! You commented on my blog and I appreciate you stopping by and reading it and having really wonderful things to say about being an artist, and how culture praises one way of making art over others. I relate fully to the experience of having people think I'm crazy for leaving a career that they deemed as really hip and cool in order to be more honest and truthful to myself and save my sanity! Nice to meet someone else who has been there and continues to make their own work. And beautiful work I might add!
