There has been significant progress on the Green Bay commission during this 1st week of spring.

I have carved in the currents on one side, however, they still need finishing. I stood the piece up with the in-studio gantry crane. Then, I moved the rail cart outside in order to use the water-cooled hydraulic chainsaw to remove the small piece in the upper curve. I have ground the
upper curve into its basic form.

It looks like I've made a lot of progress...until you walk around to the other side.

Lots of rain fell this week adding to the flooding problem. When the sun made a brief appearance, Meg and I took a trip in our canoe up Yellowbank Creek. Yellowbank wraps around our property - actually it's covering it, right now. Photo by Meg White.

The high water allowed us to travel into places outside the normal channel. Photo by Meg White.
