From my Workshop VIII. The Posh Lady

Japanese razor saw and Swedish Mora knife on driftwood. 2005. Artist s private collection.

One of the charming surprises which are close at hand when you take the step into the three-dimensional,from canvas to woodwork,is the astounding number of profiles that you can produce with one,and only one ,piece.
This is why I like this ,obviously very elegant and posh lady, on her walk down the street. She is either out on some highly important mission (visiting a lover ? ) or returning from some party where she feels that she was not satisfactorily observed.
On some other occasion,when I have found the right piece of wood I shall provide her with a rather stretched dog,of course a dachshund.
