I’m drawing a sketch onto wood for a new special order piece. Winter is when I take on commissions. I still have space to take on one or two more. This is a picture of someone’s house located above Cayuga Lake, so there will be lots of clouds. Please speak up even if you want to just explore an idea and how much it would cost.

The carving stage in making this commission for C and B is complete! Next, on to painting it!  Winter is when I take on commissions. I still have space to take on one or two more. It’s such an honor  when people trust me to commemorate their personal lives.  In a commission I aim to please others but first of all I have to please myself. Every piece of my art that goes into the world, commission or not, has to be the very best that I can do.a

Horizontal Sleeping Sheep #26. Earlier I showed the sketch for this piece. Here it is complete! Usually In any one animal picture I have at least one sheep with its eyes open – but this entire little flock is catching it’s Zzzzs.

A gold leafed hand carved sign I made almost 30 years ago. It’s still in use, in need of a little paint but still looking good.
