Here's a carving I did a few years ago out of basswood. I no longer have him but I recall him being about 6" long and 1.5" wide standing about 3" tall (plus tail). His legs are really bowed. He's mounted on a burl block. I painted him with watercolors (I think) ... I'm old .. I forget ... I hope my cats will forgive me ...

Re: Caricature
Thanks Doug .. he was fun to do. I was bored at my shop one day and started carving (an advantage to owning the place). The customers found it entertaining as well. I can't remember who I gave it to though ... I don't remember a lot of things ... sigh ...

Do you ever go into a room and then wonder what you're doing there? Sigh.

Nice work, Ken . . very nice . . :thumbsup:

As for memory, unless you're as old as I am, it gets worse . . my memory these days is in a little, spiral notepad . . :(

Thanks John ... thanks a lot for reminding me that things get worse as well. So optimistic ... sigh ... :lol:

Re: Caricature
Ken, this is as cute as can be! I've finally had a bit of time to explore the new forum, and though I don't really work in wood, I've been so impressed by everything here.

I've known three different beagles, and you've captured the hound dog so well with this whimsical piece. Well done! :clap:

Re: Caricature
Thanks guys. He was fun to carve although getting his legs bowed was a bit tricky due to the grain .. but it was necessary for the caricature to work out right.

Re: Caricature

Re: Caricature
Thanks ... unfortunately I have no photos of the piece before it was painted and now its sold. When I did this one I slipped into "the zone" and lost all track of time. When that happens I don't think about taking progress photos and with small pieces I tend to stay zoned out till they're done. In the future I'll try to take more breaks so I can take some progress photos.

Re: Caricature
Your little Beagle is a very handsome piece, Ken. Ive never owned a Beagle, but have had the Basset Hounds whos only talents are sleeping and eating.:)

SparrowHawk7 09-13-2016 10:20 AM

Re: Caricature
Thank you. These days I have cats who have the same talents as your Bassett with the possible exception that they ignore me most of the time - except of course, when it's time to eat. :lol:
