I have created a couple of shallow relief carvings from photographs taken at the Tales From the Tavern series in Santa Ynez, California. The first was of personal favorite, Sam Baker.
Next up was Dave Alvin. At his Fall 2016 show, producer, Ron Colone, showed the carving to Dave prior to going on. Dave was smitten by it, so it was his. I met him after the show and signed the piece, which was carved in Mahogany (as was the Sam Baker carving).
Carving is my go-to rainy day activity. Hopefully, a wet winter will give me the opportunity to expand this series.
