Gnome home

The Hundred Birds Project has occupied most of my limited carving time the last few months. But I’d go crazy if that’s all I carved. Last week I started working on this whimsical house (gnome home) in cottonwood bark, and I finally finished it Monday night. All told I probably have six or eight hours in it.

The piece is a wall hanging, about nine inches tall on the right side, and about two and a half inches wide. Don’t know yet where I’ll hang it.

This is the second “flat back” I’ve carved. I did the other one about two years ago. I also carved a larger whimsical house in a class back in October of 2010.

I like carving the cottonwood bark. The only real problem is that I have to buy the stuff! I might have to find a good supplier, though, and stock up. These things are addictive.
