I've been working on a little project to test my techniques. It's a sample piece that encorporates alot of the tools in my arsenal, Design, building reliefs(using Enroute software),Routing, Carving, painting and Glazing.
This is what I started with.
Traced around the parts of the picture I wanted using Enroute, and created two different reliefs, one for the back ground or the main body of the sign and the second was the trees and the landscape between them. This picture shows both reliefs as they will be applied to each other.
Then off to the Multicam for some router magic.
I'll post more in the next few days. Keep Checking back.

This is an on going story of my explorations into the artistic world,chronicling the process of this journey. Highlighting my successes as well as my failures. I'll try not to focus on the failures, but they are what has taught me the most.
I Owe the ability to take this journey to; My Mom
(for she bred in me a drive and creativity required for this type of trip) My Incredible Wife and Children for their support, and to the world of creative people that inspire me everyday.
One in particular is Dan Sawatzky (click here to meet Dan) This Guy has Changed the way I look at things. He is truly an artist and a Visionary with passion.
