Firstly, I have added a page about commissioning to my shop. Here.
And, randomly, something I’d like your opinions on, I walked across a snowy flat playing field this morning and on my return, noticed that my previous tracks meandered a bit. I got to wondering if that was the most efficient way to get somewhere, or would it use up less energy to walk in a perfect straight line? A straight line would seem to be quicker, but it would take energy and concentration. I imagined the 200 yds I walked to be 200 miles heading for the North Pole. And such is life. Is it best to make a plan and stick to it rigidly, or relax a bit and meander? As this is a carving blog, is it better to do a drawing, transfer that drawing to the timber and efficiently chop away, sticking to the plan? Or meander a bit, knowing it will take a few more days? I usually stick to the plan, and try and walk in a straight line. But then again, I’m quite tired!
