Where to Get Inspiration?

One of the things people wonder is where to get inspiration for their carvings. Let me encourage you to take inspiration from the people you love the most. One of the things that has helped me as a carver, is to think about the people I love, and what they would enjoy in a carving. Then I set out to see what I can come up with. I enjoy doing something out of love for someone else. It seems that the carving turns out so much better when it is personalized and infused with thought for someone else. I many ways the carving is a little easier because it flows from your heart to your hands, instead of being just a cold, calculated set of cuts and shaping. Let your carving be an extension of your heart!
