Welcome to 2018
 
It has been a busy year, so not too much time to carve! But I still am working hard at finding more ideas to spread the art of cottonwood bark carving!
Above displayed one of my recent carvings,
"La Montanara" (23.2cm= 9.2"),
which already found a new home.
 
Send me an email if you are interested in one of my  carvings, or check out what I have on consignment at the
"Blue Moose",
a wonderful gift store in Fort Collins.

       
"Chateau des Reves" (17.6cm= 6.85")



"Mountain of Secrets"
Donated to ArtWorks 2018-11 for their "12x12 $100 Fundraiser"
and it found a new home at the event
