Here are a couple of pictures of Lola as she takes shape. As you can see, things are finally starting to green up in the background. The way the weather has been so far this year, I’m suspecting about three weeks of grass cutting before the snow starts to fly again. I should mention that Toby is pretty much completed…I just need to urethane the oak base before I take a few photos for the blog.
We had a nice visit with Peggy’s Mom and Sister, Bonnie, this weekend and they liked Lola as well. Bonnie likes to think that we enjoy her visits a lot, so we always tell her that when we see her to feed her ego ( you can probably sense that she reads these blogs ). She also has a Lab so we had to keep a close eye on her through the weekend and check her purse as she left for home.
But back to Lola…She has the sides of her mouth curled out a bit as her catch-of-the-day is going to be resting there soon. I’m looking forward to carving a fish, even though it’ll be a small one, as I haven’t carved a fish before. I know that there’s a category for fish carvings at the shows that I attend, but I don’t think they’ll accept a micro-fish.
Enjoy the photos.
