Jim Carpenter - Painting Seminar

We are pleased to have, as one of our seminar speakers this year, Jim Carpenter. His seminar on painting will be at 11:00, Saturday February 17, 2018. The following is from Journal Now.

"Jim Carpenter, a bird carver, finds inspiration everywhere.
"He carves life-like sculptures that show birds in their natural habitat. ... He paints all his sculptures with acrylics or oils.
“ 'I usually decide on the bird first, then how it will be mounted, including the habitat, and then make the habitat out of whatever it takes to create the habitat I am envisioning,'
“...'My theory is that a great carving done with a so-so paint job is just a so-so piece. ...'”

Ron Dowdy Painting Seminar

"Woodworking has been a life long vocation and avocation...
"While I have been fortunate enough to validate my progress by winning some top awards, the journey is the ultimate reward: induction into the CCA; making new friends who creatively express themselves through their art; sharing concepts through teaching and seeing people’s approval through their smiles and chuckles.”

"Turning a piece of wood into something that brings joy and wonder to others is something that gives me a great sense of enjoyment and accomplishment.
