Here is a project that I recently finished. Some of you may have followed its construction on Facebook. I wanted to post the finished piece here for others to see. I was asked by some friends to share what happened with this leather carving.

This carving has found a home in Montana. It raised $4250.00 for the Great Falls Symphony Association at their Black Tie and Blue Jeans event on March 8th. The money that was raised goes toward their Education and Outreach Programs. This piece of art generated more activity and funds than any of the other items offered that evening.

You can find out a bit more about what went into piece and why it is titled "Heart of Montana" by visiting http://elktracks.net/shop/print You can also get information on the prints that are now available.

Really, really, nice!! That is what we are all trying to achieve, and what you seem to keep achieving. I normally don't like coloring in a piece because it doesn't look natural, however; in this case it just looks like, well like Mother Nature grew it that way. Can't ask for more than that. Glad to see it did so well in raising funds for a good cause. It just shows that not only leather workers can appreciate your art. Great Job!

The skull is embossed and elevated out of the oval. It is a little hard to explain. I've been asked to do something like this in a class and will probably be offering something soon. It will be a Texas focused theme but will have all of the same elements. It will probably be more of a course with several focused classes.
