Block Carving and Exhibit

 I've carved some turtles.  This one is a bigger one than I usually carve - 8x10"  I've used a couple for my composition book covers - I had to cut out the turtle though as the 8x10 didn't look right.

Below is a photo from a recent exhibit I was juried in and won "Honorable Mention."  The show was sponsored by my fiber group - Fiber Artists Network, Jacksonvill3, Florida.  The show was exhibited at the Butterfield Gallery, St. Augustine, Florida.  "Wanderlust" is a piece I created several years ago.  The theme for the show was "Faces and Places."  My fabric portraits didn't make the cut.  Oh, well, tis life of an "artist."
I'm on my way to Kentucky to see my grandson and daughter.  When I return, I have 2 pieces to create and finished:  one a book and the other a fabric wall hanging - both figuring leaf prints.  Art on hold as family calls!  And what a pleasure!
