Santa and Guy with Big HAT

A couple of carvings in the flat plane style. Both are 4 1/2 inch tall. The eyes are two cut triangles and painted black on one side and white on the other. I did relieve the outside corner a bit. It is a simple way to do eyes.

Golden Dragon

Girard gave me a cutout of this dragon, and said, because I like to carve small things. This relief is 4 1/2 inch wide and 3 1/4 inch tall. It was a lot of fun carving as I haven't carved a dragon before.

Light In The Forest

This votive holder is carved out of cottonwood bark. The tree is 8 inches tall and 3 1/4 inches at the bottom branches. The base is 9 inches by 5 inches. I added a little bird  carved out of basswood to add some contrast. I may add some detail and paint the bird later.
