Carving familiar images
I've had a picture of my doctor as a young boy for a long time. I photographed it from a snapshot he had on the bulletin board. I thought it was endearing with his big ears sticking out and his finger in his mouth. I also had a picture of a dog my granddaughter likes. I never got around to doing anything with them, but today I thought I'd carve them so I can use them as stamps. My supplies for carving are minimal, and simple to carry, so I took them to the senior center art get together and sat and carved. And talked, and listened, and carved. A nice morning.
