So far it's been this one. Difficult because all I had to start with was an animated gif from Stick. He sits on that mountain and thinks of the strangest things.

This one was my "most demanding" because of the following reasons......some related to skills (or lack thereof) and some related to the ultimate customer:

1) At this stage of my progression, I had never attempted anything this detailed with the tools I had at the time. Looking back on this, I think I was actually crazy to attempt it. It was done free handed.

2) I had a short time frame to complete this in.....only a week to draw, layout, carve, paint and complete.

3) This was done without prior approval of the motorcycle gang's leadership. My nephew is now a member at large of the club but was a "prospect" at the time. I was not sure he had permission to have me create it.

4) IT WAS FOR A MOTORCYCLE GANG!!! I had just finished watching the series "Sons Of Anarchy!!" My mind was running wild with all kinds of imagination!! I had NO IDEA how they would react to my encroaching upon their beloved logo!!! LOL


But that was last year, I'm still here, and have lost my fear.........but I keep watching my rear!! LOL

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
