First, let me wish you seasons greetings from myself and my family. It’s a busy time of the year and I really must remind myself of the real “reason for the season.” The year 2003 is finishing up for me at breakneck speed. I pray your weeks ahead will slow down to the point that you may enjoy the blessing of Christmas.
I have just posted four new sculptures on my web site that I recently had photographed. I think that you’ll enjoy seeing them and reading the accompanying poetry. They are, “Above the Thunder” (horse), “In Turn” (eagle), “Question of Denial” (abstract) and “Winner Lose All” (Fish). The horse will probably be next year’s 2005 calendar cover. They are all on one page of new sculptures on the web site with links to enlarge the pictures and read the poetry.
If you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping yet, let me remind you about my 2004 Sculpture and Beyond Calendar. These make great gifts and their is still time for us to ship them to you before Christmas. They are available for purchase on my web site individually and also at a reduced price in quantities. I hope you’ll consider making these a part of your Christmas gift giving, it is truly a gift that will last all year long.
I have a trip a planned in February to deliver a sculpture to Florida, after that and a couple of trips to Texas for wood we ought to be regular homebodies, (I wish). In June I have been invited to help judge the 2004 International Woodcarver’s Congress in Davenport, IA. I will also teach a two day class during that week. In early August I will be teaching in Canada. The following weekend is the Sculpture in the Park show in Loveland. Then at the end of August I will be teaching at the Krausman’s Woodcarving Studio. I hope to see some of you at the classes in 2004.
Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year,
J. Christopher White
