      My brother, Jeff, is an award-winning wood carver. Most of them are life sized. Here are a few of my favorites that he's done. The lighted cabinet is one he sold to a restaurant so it's always on display. Others were bought by collectors. I took closeups of the tiny moth he carved and if you look closely, even the wooden tree is just a carving, not a true branch. The hummingbirds he does are quite collectible. He loves doing fish. He carves and paints them so no one can tell they aren't real. He even gives them a "wet" look! Some of them are "leaping up" out of the water and causing a "splash". People can't believe he just picked up a piece of firewood one day and carved a fish. LOL! He said it just looked like a fish to him.


      I used a kit from Pam Lefors designs called Wildwood. One was a free QP that I liked a lot but wanted to add to so got the kit, too! Guess that's why they do QP's! LOL!

      This is absolutely breathtaking. How long does it take him to say, carve a fish-or carve a bird??? This is amazing! What a wonderful talent.

      From start to finish about a week. He airbrushes them and has to let paint dry, etc. after the carving and sanding and do this in between his regular job so about a week. The "splashes" can take quite a while as they are some sort of liquid polymer that he pours out and shapes.

Then have them call Crops because we're probably together at the Yoville Races!
