The first Dream Fish was carved in 2011 as gift presentation to a fisherman friend.  At the time it was challenging carving project in which it was learned that “Challenge is a teacher of unlearned lessons.”  Anytime a carver begins a new carving project it becomes a “learning exercise” of transposing an imagined subject into a tangible carving. Another lesson learned along the carving journey is what is learned in carving the subject for the first time will guide carving it the second time to expand the learning potential.  So, it was when a commission came to carve the Dream Fish another time a renewed challenge of relearning while carving from a distant memory that new lessons opened during the carving process.  Such a positive experience led to carving another Dream Fish to expand the “challenge learning lessons.”  These two Dream Fish carvings make up this combined gallery.
