Where the Gnome am I Shoreline Park Wood Carving 5

While on a trip to Nanaimo BC visiting my Heart brother Serge RIP Heart in 2013 we visited the Campbell River Shoreline Art's display of that year's award winners in the wood carving competition. The artists use chain saws to carve their works. These are absolutely incredible works deserving to be displayed for all to enjoy. 

"Where the Gnome am I" was carved by Matthew ( My brother Serge's son ) in 2013 at the Campbell River Chainsaw Wood Carving Competition. 

The plaque reads as follows. 
 Campbell River Shoreline Arts    "Transformation on the Shore chainsaw carving competition"
"Where the Gnome am I" - Matthew Knee - Novice 1st Place. 2013

I am so very proud of Matthew's accomplishment. It was especially wonderful to see it in person while he was present so he could show it to me. We all took turns sitting on it and took several group photos of our family. 

Such a lovely bench should never be empty.  Serge and family always loved wolves and they were showcased in a variety of artworks in their homes. I though it would be fitting to add one here to enjoy this incredible place to take a little rest.  My intention was to create a simple manipulation to compliment Matthew's incredible work. 

Dedicated to my :iconrbheartplz: grandson Raz :icongenerazart: for his birthday. Happy Birthday :iconcakeplz: Much love to you from your grandma. :iconhug1plz: :iconfloatingheartplz:
Stock credit. Thank you for the use of your beautiful stock.

I am so happy you like this one. :):):) I think the wolf did it LOOL I know how much your love animals of all types. It is such a bittersweet memory for me one that I will always cherish. The funny thing is that Serge kept wanting everyone to sit on the bench for family group photos and he did not understand that I needed at least one or two shots of only the bench for my artwork. The wolf was an after thought. I am glad I added it in the end. Much love to you from your Mum :hug::heart:

Cool!! Awesome scene! Nice shot!! Chain saw wood carver or ice carvers are outstanding artists and i love what they do!!:heart::sun:

I agree with you and when I was a small girl living in Quebec during the Winter Carnival there we had these incredible ice carvings. Thank you for reminding me of those beauties. Yes both are very difficult to achieve and it does take a very special talent to created with such tools. :):):):)
