Captain Jinks (Side view)
Another endearing aspect of "Captain Jinks" is his song sung by the 5th army Calvary in his honor, "Captain Jinks” of the Horse Marine's"' who feeds his horse on Pork and Beans. A wonderful character that I hope shows in my carving of him.
Whittlin’ (Side view)
I love to see how much I can put into a small block of wood by taking away only what is necessary. I like to carve from the corners, first because it's easier to dig into the wood from the corners, also I can create more depth when I utilize the corners. I like looking at my finished pieces and see the original block of wood.
Cowboy Caffe Latte (side view)
I also wanted to use this piece to test my carving skills by seeing how deep I could dig into this wood block. I nearly carved through the whole block and I opened up holes betwen the arms and around the legs. So much of the carving is happening inside his outstretched arms.
Old Branch (Front view)
I imagined “Old Branch” would have been quite a character in his hay-day. When we first moved to Broomfield there was an ancient cowboy living in a small frame house not too far from the Boulder - Denver Turnpike. His lone frame house was pleasantly nestled in a cool grove of Cottonwoods before the highway was built in the late 1950's, Remnants of a dried out reservoir can still be seen not far from the house foundations.

Cowboy Caffe Latte (Front view)
With anything that I carve there has to be a story or a joke. I always wanted to carve a cowboy squatting in front of a campfire pouring a cup of coffee. However, there wasn’t a joke there until I changed the cowboy into a corporate/weekend Cowboy pouring himself his venti cup of caffe lattè.
|Nativity Days Art Show, Nativity of our Lord Church, 900 W. Midway Ave, Broomfield||2018-08-15 thru 2018-08-20|
Friday, August 17, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. - Opening reception for the third annual "Nativity Days Art Show".
Seventeen wood carvings are being shown in the 2018 “Nativity Days” Art show. The carvings represent probably 25 years of carving. They were carved almost entirely during my lunch breaks in the several offices that I worked throughout my working career. I’ve never had a chance to show these altogether at one place and I thought this would be the perfect venue for this retrospecrive. I had to ask some of my collectors to loan their pieces to me for this short show..
