Default Unusual subject matter for me

Instead of my normal wildlife projects, I deviated quite a bit during the frequent snowstorms and below zero days to create this castle for one of my granddaughters. The 1/2" thick boards (four layers) were cut with a scroll saw, then carved, and subsequently layered to create a 3-D piece for her to hang in her new princess bedroom. Fun change!

Love it, Dick, and it's sure to be a treasured heirloom. Hope you enjoyed the change from your more typical (but equally lovely!) type of work.

Now what will you make for the other granddaughters? Grandsons? Forum members?

What a beautiful piece of art! How did you do the background? This would work great for some of the wildlife pieces. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for all the nice comments. Yes Gloria, she is a favorite princess. I have 6 of them. You are correct Carl, it did take more than an hour to complete. Carole, she was quite excited when she received it. In fact, she hugged it!- hard to do with a framed piece.
Another granddaughter received this one with the carved elephant. Her mother is a Mary Englebright fan and requested bright colors...hence, all the Englebright fabric patterns.
The background of the castle was painted with artist acrylics and I have used this method with some wildlife projects in the past.

It should be illegal for someone to be so talented. Love the mix of material & wood.
