    Wolf

    Finally got this one done. Been busy in the basement putting up drywall so haven't got to spend a lot of time with the scrolling. But I did get this one done this evening. I getting in the mood to try another avenue of scrolling. I'm looking at patterns for clocks that have all the fancy scrolling. Haven't decided on which on yet but I think it would be a lot of fun and a challenge to make one.

    Anyway... The Wolf!

    A real beauty, Paul. The eyes are particularly well done.

    Paul this one takes my breath away. As Ted said those eyes and for me the ears. Me thinks there is artistry of another kind in your hands. You rival Dave H and his pictures.
    Wish u were into making you tube videos would be real cool to see you do the process specifically the cutting. How many hours would u say u have in this piece Paul?

    Just amazing. The detail is wonderful on this guy and as mentioned, the eyes have it. What is the overall dimension?

    Rob, thank you for the highest compliment I could ever receive. But rival Dave's talent is some thing I could never achieve. Keep in mind he starts with a blank canvas and paints his beautiful pictures. He has to know all about colors, shading, shadowing, blending, etc, etc, the list goes on to things I couldn't even think about. I however start with a black and white picture and just cut out all the black..

    This one probably took me about 20 hours to cut.

    The cut out part is around 8 1//2" X 10" the piece of wood is 9" x12"

    That's a real beauty, Paul! The whole image looks alive, especially the eyes.
