The Process I use
Working with a single chip carving knife, I create sculptures and whimsies from figures I draw directly onto the wood. I then carve the wood, sand it to a smooth surface, and then paint each piece with multiple coats and colors. Finally, I sign and date each piece with the completion period, sometimes adding a unique phrase as well.
"Authenticy takes work. It requires time and effort to construct it and constant tending to keep it in place. People go to all this effort because authenticy also has potency, which can be directed to many varied ends." 1.
