Default Return from Debbe Edwards session

Mornin' folks, just returned from a great carving session with Debbe Edwards. The net she casts for students is getting larger. We had one carver show up from North Carolina. Debbe takes only 10 students in back-to-back sessions each fall. There is also a waiting list with current year participants having the first shot at next year.

This year, we moved from bears to cats and I find them much more difficult to carve. Sure are a lot of angles and curves on those cougar faces. This piece is deceptive. It looks simple, but, Debbe even took the leap of allowing power in a couple of spots that were particularly hard to reach and held great potential for breakage. I try to mentally put my carvings in a setting as I work on them. On these two, the reclining female has perked her ears in interest. The standing male has his partially laid back. Another male is out there and both are saying, "Who is this?"

Now, it is back to house building and very little carving for me. Target date for completion is about a month then maybe I can complete the pieces I am doing (rearing horse and barn owl shown elsewhere as WIP) and the moose antler I started last summer.

Power? POWER? Debbie Edwards a Power Carver? Please....say it isn't so! (Only Kidding!)

Nice work on those two cats Paul. You should have driven south on 59 about 20 minutes and stopped for a visit while you were in this area. We live just south of Grove.

Lynn, hate to admit this; but, I did head down 59 on my return and thought of you as I went through Jay. We had wanted to see the pelicans on Grand Lake and were not disappointed!

We had company that arrived here at the ranch while I was still up at Debbe's. Had to get home before they left.

I ordered one of those vice/stands that is heavy enough to allow mallet use and will be going back over here in a few weeks to pick it up. Maybe we can stop by on that trip.
