What a Relief!

I haven't done a relief carving in a bit so I started this one a couple days ago. It has a LONG way to go before it's finished but I'll post pics of it as it progresses.

I always start out shallow and then work everything deeper (probably making more work for myself, lol) - but I think it will be nice when it is done.

It will have its own carved frame and I haven't decided how I'm going to carve the frame yet.

Any thoughts?

I've tossed around a few ideas like rope or leaves but I still have plenty of time to think about it.

Suggestions are welcome. :)



  1. This is going to be lovely. Could be a scene in almost any rural area. Beautiful choice of subject and your carving is so good. Can't wait to see it when you have finished it!


  2. Wow! I love this. You are so talented. I enjoy seeing your WIP. I've never done relief carving and like to see the steps.

  3. Thank you so much, ladies. :) I'll try to post pics as I go and I have a LONG way to go... :)
