Raw King Salmon before painting
Trout and Salmon are constantly in motion. I try to capture that motion in my carvings to maybe bring on the "willing suspension of disbelief" that you're seeing a painted block of wood.

This is the finished form of above. Notice the Mesas painted on the side.
Josie's Rocking Trout
This is a "Splake", speckled/ lake trout cross that I carved for my daughter Josie's second birthday.
It was stolen from my farm in Sharon, VT in 2009. If anyone has any information about it's whereabouts, please contact me at the email in Contacts. It's about 3 feet by 1 foot.
