Sculpture

bearzSince I’m hanging out at home hiding from the virus, I have very little to do, so I thought I might as well try to fulfill one of my longtime ambitions, which is to become a chainsaw artist!

There’s no place that teaches this stuff, you just have to fire up your chainsaw and go to town.

This one’s pretty good for a beginner, right?

But no, I lie. (Which I do for a living, if you remember.)  One of my neighbors had to take an old tree down, and hired an actual chainsaw artist to do the work.  The guy is self-taught, because you can’t go to college for this sort of thing, and he studies the tree for a while and tries to bring out what he sees.  It’s been interesting watching the sculpture grow day after day.

It’s good that he’s talented, because if he were a crap sculptor I’d hesitate to complain, because he’s the guy with the chainsaw!

He’s actually very considerate, and doesn’t start the chainsaw till 11am, which allows me to sleep late, which I do whenever possible.  Then I awake and look out the window, and there’s another bear looking at me.

Late sleeping + bears.  Nothing wrong with that.
