Here's a piece I did earlier this year, the customer was my wife and her sisters! My Father-in-laws birthday was coming up and the girls always have a hard time figuring out what to get for him. So they came up with the idea of having me do a carving of him. They gave me the liberty of coming up with the theme for the piece, and I didn't have to think too hard, he has a real love for his grand kids. In the piece had been sitting in his chair reading the Bible and is now standing, reaching out to pick up one of the little ones. I'd never done a chair before so that was a fun experience, but carving a family member was loads of fun. Hope you like it, he sure did.
