Box Elder bowl *PIC*

>I'm still learning to carve so I threw this one together this week. What do you charge for something like this? Since I don't carve often I'm slow. This took about 5 yours total from start to finish. It's about 5" across and 4 inches tall.

It had some dark red areas and quite a few lighter red areas that didn't stand out much. I took the airbrush and deepened the color in some areas and added some color in others. I'll call it enhancing reality. I tried to make it look as natural as possible.

Sorry about the photo. I shot this on my living room couch with a mirror to bounce light back in the shadow. Color balance is off a little but pretty close. I don't have time to shoot this properly before it goes to the Gallery with a bunch of other stuff.
