Carving Show – October 26

The Capital Area Carvers and the Badger Wood Turners have a show annually.  This year it is located at the Abundant Life Christian School in Madison.  I am working on two carving projects.  The first is a blue heron made from wood harvested near the lake by Hudson Park.  This ash tree was knocked down in a storm and was harvested and sawn into planks at the Urban Wood Fest on Atwood Avenue.  I took a look around at the mound and the location and remembered seeing a blue heron on the lake edge.  So this this is as far as I have gotten. I am working on the painting scheme.

The second is a Santa – this as an unfinished block of basswood and I was told it was intended to be a Santa coming down the chimney. This is what resulted.  Along with other club members carvings, this will be for sale at the show.

Taking a class

I’ve been taking a class with Nancy Macgregor on “a bold approach” to watercolor.   We have worked on a few assignments.  Some has been fun, some frustrating, but all of it an adventure into the worlds of color and composition.  Below are some photos.  The students will be hanging an exhibit at the Madison Christian Community on Old Sauk Road in Madison  – this is a unique location where two congregations share a building.  I will be joining the fun as the amatuerist of amateurs.
