I've posted all the canvases I did for the Art House Coop project; all but the one, however, that my dh, Jim, created because he wanted to play too. I couldn't scan it because, well, sculpture is a little dimensional for the scanner bed. Did I say sculpture? Carving is more accurate, I suppose, though still quite an accomplishment given the dimensions 3" x 3". 
I hadn't photographed his word/canvas when I posted the others. It's only fair to show it off too, really, it has just taken a while to get to; not totally because he has so much experience. Truthfully, as a relative beginner, it is a bit intimidating to live and share a studio with a lifelong artist. He'd roll his eyes if he read this, after all, I have given him a few ideas here and there. And last week when he started a new project and needed wire, a small hammer, scissors, a watch face, leaves, buttons, a strip of red fabric, letters and an array of other supplies and doo-dads, and who did he come to? Maybe I've only been making art for a couple of years but I do know how to forage and stock up!

Well, it's recognisably a chicken, isn't it? Commendable, I say, especially if he's just a beginner. My "bit of fluff" sat next to me once when I was painting and he grabbed a brush and some paint and just went for it. I got the most amazing dragonfly image from him, which I preceded to convert to pastel, I was so inspired by it.
Oh, and btw, I have NO idea who your friend is! So your secret will continue to remain safe.

Hi Patti, this piece of Jim's is bringing a smile to my face and a giggle to my heart - but I can't figure out what the word is. what did he carve it our of? I really like the canvas surface painting - did he cover it with something?!
Your styles are very different, but I wouldn't blame Jim for rolling his eyes - your work stands tall by his side. Diversity in creativity rocks :)
