richard.....i dont think so as i have very little inventory and a NY show next month plus one in santa fe and chicago....and a show at the LI museun with william kink in the fall.....and some commission work too. be careful what you wish for!!
thanks jeff...a year and a half ago i was in a serious accident and shattered my right hand and wrist. god gave me an incredible gift but he took half of it back. since then i have learned it is far more about imagination and tenacity than physical talent. i used to have the steadiest hand possible....now not so much. i used to do the bills by drawing and painting over a background color with no mistakes. now they are little paintings where the background color is re applied until it looks right. sometimes many layers to do what i could once do on the first try. the carving is all about tenacity and a willingness to just go for it.
nate....i started carving books, then painting the pages, then any paper object. the irony is intentional..thanks
OK...back to working on the box and deeper painting...
