This piece was done for a friend of ours and had more "firsts" for me. The family enjoys kayaking, so what better pose than to have him in one. I never carved a kayak before, but I found some good pictures of him online so at least I had something to work off. His position also made it a bit more difficult, as I had to get all the angles just right. He had such a content look on his face in the picture that I gave the piece the title "Still Waters" with a reference to Psalm 23. All things considered I was very happy with how it turned out. There are more pictures in the Gallery to the top right.
