Wooden carving of eagle holding fish

Category: Purple Ranch 2008 Tour | Posted: Wed Oct 29, 2008 2:33 pm



Last weekend we took Purple Ranch on tour to Union Valley, a small Texas town located in Hunt County. We met some truly fascinating people. Yvonne Brown with KHYI 95.3 radio, Michael Squires, owner of Squire Haven Bengals and Tommie Ledford a wonderful artist creating incredible paintings using a wide assortment of medium but my favorites were her watercolors. The above wood carving was incredible. The artist was commissioned to carve this eagle out of a live oak tree. The detail he accomplished using a chainsaw as his brush and wood as his canvas was something you would just have to see. As usual we had a great time and the weather could not have been more beautiful.

Until Next Time. Lavender Up!

Oh my - what a wonderful carving. The detail the artist has achieved is superb. It's hard to believe that it was all done with a chinsaw. So glad you enjoyed your trip and that the weather was good for you.

Chainsaw art of this quality always amazes me. I'm happy if I manage to take down a tree with a chainsaw. *lol* Hat off to the artist!
