It is time for an update!  First off I have to say this has been a great March.  This is the first real spring we have had since we moved here in 2001.  Every year it has snowed until at least the end of April and has gone directly into summer.  This year we are getting sunshine and springlike temperatures.  Beautiful!

Brandon is working on a couple of projects. He is working on a commission nutcracker for a collector.  The collector had a picture of a carved meerschaum pipe he wanted turned into a nutcracker. Brandon designed the stylized horse figural nutcracker for him and has been working on that.  Here are some progress pictures…

This nutcracker has a lot of detail with the reigns and mane and is going to be a spectacular piece when completed.  I will be posting more pictures as it nears completion.

Brandon is also working on a custom hand carved residential sign. The sign has a nautical style with a lighthouse.  The sign will be painted and the lettering will be gold leafed.  Here is a photo of the sign is it’s early stage….

I have been painting.  I just completed the Bat Wing Mantle Clock II (the sequel).  Brandon carved the wings and added them to the mantle clock.  It is painted black and a moody gray blue shade.  It has a couple spooky scenes like the haunted mansion on the front and the witch riding by the crescent moon on the top surface.  This clock makes quite a statement and is perfect for Halloween.

The Bat Wing Mantle Clock II is currently listed on eBay and will close next Sunday.

I am now painting a few spring items and also a different style clock too. I will post pictures of those next time.
