Female Faces

Leave a comment

Few carvings of female faces where I have experimented with different face/skull shapes and hair styles to give each face its uniqueness.
Each face is carved from 1.5 sq inch linden wood and finished with linseed oil and oil stains followed by coat paste wax.

Barowski Brothers

Barowski brothers are simple country folks that value what they have and don’t envy what they don’t. Life is full of surprises, they will tell you, make sure you enjoy the ones you like and overcome the ones you don’t.

Alena and her grand mother

Leave a comment

Though decades separate Alena and her grandmother, their mutual admiration binds them closer together. They share their mutual passion for gardening and love to learn from each other about times that have gone by and times we live in. In this world where our respect for elders is rapidly disappearing, their relationship is an inspiration for us all.

Alberto and Carlos own a farm outside the village by the river. It is hard work but they enjoy ever minute of it. They also enjoy welcoming people, especially children to their farm as they believe children ought to learn where their food comes from and people who make it possible.

Alex has that rare combination of good looks and personality that always turns heads his way where ever he happen to be. Add a bit of humor to that as well and his charm is irresistible. Once a lady asked him if he would be willing to share some of his looks with her to which he replied: “I was just about to ask you that”.

Mrs. Potts was an elementary school teacher and her love for educating and engaging children has not waned since the day she entered her first class. Though she is retired now, she still loves to read books to children in her home and nothing makes her more happy than to see curiosity and fascination on the faces of kids around her as her story takes a dramatic turn.

Jacek is a music teacher and you can say that music is in his genes. His dad and grand dad were music instructors as well and he is proud to follow in their tradition. Jacek believes that music is the key to human soul and is always happy to give you his recommendation for whatever music your mood calls for. Another favorite of his is oatmeal raisin cookies. So if you happen to bake some, be sure to share some with him. In return, you might be treated with some wonderful impromptu violin folk fiddle.

Mr. Thomas

Mr. Thomas is a local High school teacher but to his students he is much more than that. He is their friend, mentor and somebody they can turn to when they need a fair advice. Always well dressed with a smile on his face, he is somebody we all wish to have on our side in time of need.
