This was a comic drawing with the title "It's been one of those days". It's carved from 1/2 inch thick basswood and painted with acrylics. I learned a few things carving this turtle and I'm going to carve another one with a few changes. It was fun to carve and bring out the different levels. He does look a little punch drunk after a hard days work or maybe it was play.

This thatch hut was carved out of cottonwood bark. The hole in the front window was made by carpenter ants and goes thought to the bottom at the back. There is one other hole on the back. I found dead ants in both holes. The hut is finished with semi-gloss Deft. With the winter storms coming through, it makes you think of the little grass huts, a fruit drink in your hand and the warm ocean breeze.
