Caturday human art!!

My friends,Grant and Kathy, are artists
Kathy sketches  and Grant carves from her sketches 
They are just starting on another very very exciting project a Baldwin Train Engine!!

This is their latest piece of exquisite hand sketched then hand carved art...

Lighthouse *Relief carving

*Relief carving is a type of wood carving in which figures are carved in a flat panel of wood. The figures project only slightly from the background rather than standing freely.

I have their permission to show this  here is the explanation of 
how it was done

We took a photo of the painting, on the side of Tony's Bait Shop, enlarged it and then sketched from there to make a pattern. Also used a postcard that showed the lighthouse keepers house. All of those buildings to the right of the lighthouse are gone, due to weather. Just the lighthouse remains and the stand for the oil tower, little building next to it.  This was a scene from the past on the Oregon Coast!!!

I say standing ovation and WELLLLLLLL DONE Webbs

Below is a photo taken in Historic Oakwood
