Ark number 2 is done, and measures 15 inches from bow to stern, and 18 inches tall. Just need to wax it.
My plan to complete all the arks took a turn when someone just ordered 5. Now I must find the time to make some more. Egads! Right now I'm painting the first thing in the morning, when eyes are fresh and hands more steady. About 2 hours maximum per morning for painting. Next is about 2 hours of carving animals. In the afternoon I spend some time carving Santa's and any other things. Busy busy busy!
