Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
I just can't get over the beauty of these pieces. they are so great.MB
It's a pity they can not exist in the heat.Tomás.
They are all beautiful !
oh my, these are wonderful! Such a joy to see.
All fabulous William, if I had to choose it would be the first, the heron, very elegant!
@MB: I agree!@Tomas: alas, no.@Karl: they are.@Tammie: thanks!@Hilary: indeed.
They're all incredible!
They are all beautiful again, but this time the first and the third are my favorites.
There's lots of intricate detail in these. I'm not at all sure what the second one is?
They are amazing!
The maple leaf is my favourite! They are so beautiful!
Sadly these beauties won't last!
Awwww! The maple leaf. What a nice touch. I can't see one without bursting into song. "Oh, Canada.....!"Happy Sunday.JanisGDP
That first one is my favorite in this group.
@Grace: it is elegant!@Norma: they are.@Jan: thanks!@Red: in that case, the carver turned empty space into the subject, carving the outline of a bug into the ice.@Jennifer: I agree!@Ciel: the maple leaf's my favourite of this set too.@VP: they don't last long, but they're a pleasure to see.@Janis: that's my reaction!@Sharon: it works for me too.
I heard on the radio that the program this weekend was amended because of the cold temps. Too bad!
All very good William, my favourite though is the first picture of the stork. I love the way the artist has been clever enough to show us an 'underwater' perspective as well...
These sculptures have been stunning!
As partial as I am to herons, I think the maple leaf rocks!
So clever and tasty!
@Orvokki: thanks!@RedPat: there was a concert by the husband and wife band Whitehorse that was supposed to go last night. The concert did get called off because of the extreme cold.@Geoff: I wondered if anyone might catch that!@Jackie: more to come!@Revrunner: the carvers did wonderful this year.@Cloudia: thanks!
oh, that first one is marvelous! hands down, my favorite ever.
The flying one takes my breath away!
They look so delicate!
They are exquisite. It's too bad they can't be preserved and enjoyed in later years! Or maybe these artists work with other material and so similar carvings?
Beautiful...and a touch whimsical, especially with that second one.
Wow! So much artistry going into something so ephemeral! I wonder if the artist feels freed by knowing the work is not permanent.
As ever, they all look amazing!
@Tex: thanks!@Mari: thank you!@Lois: they are delicate.@Lowell: I imagine a lot of them work with wood.@Kay: indeed!@Linda: I wonder too!@Lauren: they do, yes.@EG: I agree!
The heron is a simple composition, but very lovely. Graceful birds, graceful sculpture.
