I got my entries back from the CCA today, but still don’t know how I did! (Well, I do know that i wasn’t one of the top three). I did get a couple of IOUs for ribbons, that will be mailed to me separately, but they didn’t mention for what carvings or what category. But there was a Helvie knife enclosed with this scene, so I’m smiling already! This cowboy may look familiar to some of yall; this is the carving I did from a clay model that I made in Rich Wetherbee’s class. I tried to give the skunk the same expression, as they surprised each other coming around the corner. Thanks for looking!

Awesome, if that doesn’t bring a smile to a persons face, well just bury them. He even has a roll of TP tissue behind his back, Perfect….

Thanks for posting, and congrats on your 3. But mostly for making me smile.

The exposed butt-cheek is phenomenal.
Incredible idea, excellent carving.
