The Wood Carving

A few weeks ago, I wrote that Chef was working in a new medium — wood, instead of his usual ice.  Finally, the sculpture is complete!  I grabbed a photo of it from my mother-in-law’s blog.

I finally got up to the house this past weekend and saw it in person.  It’s amazing.  Just when I think I have a grasp of my husband’s astonishing artistry, he goes and does something like this, and I’m blown away all over again!

Chef plans to have a friend of ours who is a professional photographer go take some really good pictures of it so that she can get the detail.

It’s hard to see in this photo, but the carving illustrates all the blessings in Chef’s parents’ lives, from their childhoods in the US and Argentina, spanning through their time with Operation Mobilisation including travels through Europe, South America, and the Carribean — part of that time on a ship — to recent and current times that involve country line dancing, tandem bicycling, and a ministry to the Basque people.

I’m so impressed with my husband!


About Karen Koch

I like the old-fashioned lifestyle. All this new-fangled stuff baffles me sometimes. I cherish living out in the country, raising chickens and rabbits, planting fruit trees, and enjoying a slow life filled with beautiful words and ideas. I don't always achieve a slow life. I teach middle school English and manage a little burgeoning farm with my husband, and somewhere in the midst of that, I try to find time for writing, running, knitting, reading, and playing the ukulele. And sometimes, I actually succeed.
