It's getting deep around here...

And it's going to get deeper! :)

A few weeks ago, I showed you my new WIP relief carving. I've had a chance to work on it a couple of time since I first posted and even though I still have a long way to go, it's coming along pretty nicely.

This is what it looked like at the end of last month:

And now after some more carving:

As you see, I change my mind a lot as I carve, lol - the barn is now open in front and looks a lot different. :)

I've been working to deepen the background and I like the way shadows begin to emerge.

I have a lot more carving to do and who knows what it will look like when I'm done...

And when is a piece actually done? Isn't there always something else you wish you had added?

I thought about carving the frame of this piece but I think it might make it too busy. I might do a mosaic frame with black 1 inch glass and black grout - lol, not sure yet - I guess I'll figure that out when I get to it. :)

I'll keep you posted with pics as I go! Thanks for dropping by and visiting us in Hick Town! :)



  1. Love dropping by to see the work in progress! Beautiful piece. You are very talented!

  2. Rhonda, thanks so much! I love to carve but I always worry about finishing the piece. If I could paint like you do, it wouldn't be a problem - but I can't. :) Love your new paintings!

  3. Love the changes in your WIP. I will check backin the future to see how you are progessing

  4. Wow, Debra - what a difference a few weeks make! This is shaping up to be an awesome work of art. Keep us posted!

  5. Thanks so much, Lorri and Pam. That means a lot coming from both of you! :)
