I have been working on the cub that the mother bear is cleaning. I have applied a fur texture and opened the area around the leg.
I have also defined the mother's head and eye on this side.
I have marked on the cub's arm the areas that need further definition.
I have been working on the interior sections of the sculpture, opening the area behind this cub's head and around the mother's leg.
I have refined both faces and have cut the pupils of the eyes with a straight, round end burr, being careful not go too quickly, carving out little bits at a time. Because, if you try to go too fast, you can blow out an eye.

This is Juanita, one of my donkeys, being friendly.
These are pictures of ice crystals that I took during the extreme cold...
...and these are more ice pictures.
This is a barred owl near the studio at dusk.
We spent Christmas eve at my sister's house. We were lucky, Santa stopped by to visit!
