“waist deep in snow”



Whenever I work on a piece, no matter the size — large or small — I always look at the shape first. In this case, as with that of many others, I let the stone speak for me — I just make what it tells me. Here we have a man that is walking waist deep in snow.

Living in this part of the country, the east coast of Canada, there have been many days and winters where the snow has been this deep and then some. When I was younger (and before the snowblower!) I had the shovel to use, and when there were days like this I just stood there thinking “you’ve got to be kidding!”
