CARVING A DECORATIVE LIFESIZE RELIEF CARVING FOR A WALL

by Paul Theising.

"For some period of time I had been saving a large, thick rectangular piece of mahogany for a special carving. After finding my new lease on life after a lengthy bout with my health, and a new strong desire to rejuvenate my love for art, it was time to carve again. After choosing the section of mahogany I felt would work best, I begin to plot out my carving. Although I am doing a three-dimensional carving I’ve chosen to redo in wood one of my paintings, so my composition was already worked out. My biggest obstacle now would be perspective to have the viewers so engaged that their minds can become fixated enough to change their visual perception, and so I began."
