Y2 Art Resolutions: #19-The First Cut is the Deepest

imageY2 Art Resolutions is the second year of an evolving resolution to elevate every day by looking at art and creativity as a life’s philosophy.

Could not resist the homage to Cheryl Crow in today’s title. Actually as I continued carving at Art Camp, I found that the process was very nuanced. The grain of the wood, presence of knots, and type of cut desired requires a patient and thoughtful hand.

My second carving continued the theme of “place.” This time depicting Queen Anne’s Lace and chicory. I found the Dremel tool useful in creating the blossom centers of the QAL. As with the last block, this one was an engrossing exercise in creative problem solving.
