One can not take wood carving and carving tools everywhere. This is especially true in big cities where one depends on mass transit. Mass transit requires safety measures such as metal detectors. Metal sectors find sharp metal objects such as carving tools. Said tools would then be lost to confiscation.
So, one needs to find something creative to take on mass transit. Pencils, markers, and colored pencils work, for now. In preparation for times when carving can be done, flowers. Design and color continue. Here are a few sketches and ideas. Some are copies of other artists work. Some are originals. Can you tell which is which? Shalom.
“For the beauty of the earth, for the beauty of the skies, for the love which from our birth, over and around us lies… this our hymn of grateful praise.”
