After Seven Months On "Cor Liberum" I Am On To New Work / by Mike McCarthy


I have spent the last 7 months working almost exclusively on my Norton Commission, "Cor Liberum" While that has been a wonderful experience, I have had so many ideas for new work going through my head that it has been difficult to not work on other things. Well, "Cor Liberum" is out of the studio. While there is still another element that needs to be completed, That is being done by an engraver, so I finally get to work on a different piece!

I have already begun thinking of a name for this piece. I am leaning towards "Wild Thought". However, it is just 2 days in on the carving so I won't commit to that name just yet. This is being carved from Indiana Limestone and is a little over 4 feet tall.
