Artist's Shirt, Anonymous

Dan Driscoll

2015    Size   H: 36 in  W: 16 in  D: 7 in  

In a private collection

I usually carve everything from a solid piece of stock to avoid lamination lines, which are a problem when bleaching light wood, in this case Basswood. The exception with this piece though are the brushes. They were carved separately so I could get better detail in the bristles behind the brush, the area up close to the shirt. The brushes are actually strategically placed to cover up a large knot which I uncovered in the midst of carving. It was too late to turn back.
