…of a little woods next to the park. I caught a Wood Spirit watching me go by. He lives in an old gnarled tree trunk and I don’t think he knows I saw him.
I’ve recently become intrigued by the tradition of Wood Spirit carving like the ones done in walking sticks or Cottonwood bark and have always wanted to try it. I have done a few practice pieces to get my carving techniques down but nothing grand. This is a rough sketch I did last night that might translate to an actual wood carving some day.
The carving below is one of my practice sticks studies.
