I apologize for having been so scarce in my posts lately. As an act of ammendment I'm postig this pic of a project I just finished.
It is a carving imitating the style of Grinling Gibbons (1648–1721), althought the concept is entirely mine.
It has been a real challenge, and I've learnt a lot making it, honestly I never thought I would succeed and be satisfyed with the result
The background is a board lined with dark red velvet. The wood is linden wood. The black nails are made from a piece of ebannon that Glenn kindly gave me a couple of years ago and that I hadn't used because I thought it deserved a good place to be used. Thanks again Glenn.
As usual I'm a better carver than photographer. Please excuse the bad quality of the pic.
Comments, critics and suggestions welcome.
