Zinnia, Charlottes

 On this extremely bright, crisp fall day, here is the grandmother of all zinnias, producing more seeds than I have ever seen a flower produce.  This zinnia, which was the first flower to bloom on this volunteer zinnia plant in my garden, has been growing steadily since July to produce an enormous cone of seeds that is only now beginning to finish and release its seeds.
And for your further edification, three more direct carvings, these of those little frozen charlotte dolls, which still wander around my studio and turn up from time to time, challenging me to figure out how to carve a decent value carving of their slick porcelain bodies.  Still not there yet but liking them better.
