carving a big morning santa,,,( white pine),,, and getting ready for the next class

this is an update, the smallest one is 3 inches done on the dvd, the second is little over 5 inches and the big one will be about 9 1/2 inches high they are fun to do

hi folks, i am working on a larger morning santa,, its about 8-9 inches tall about 2 inches wide,, its out of white pine,, i got some and wanted to try a different wood then basswood,, its cuts like butter,, just a few words about the wood ,, its softer and your knife will have be very sharp so that you dont tear it up, plus it can chip if your not careful, also it has alot of grain in it,, which is fine but,, i think i prefer the basswood yet,, i feel you can get more details carved easier in basswood than pine,,, so i will be sure to take a few photos of it when i am done
along with carving something i wanted to for a while, i am getting ready for my standing branch santa woodcarving class next monday,,, feb 28,, its a one day class, so life stays busy,, and its was a good day,, keep carving,, arleen
