David sent me the above photo prior to the display being completed. I asked him to send photos of the ice carvings once they are displayed. And, here they  are. Aren’t they beautiful all lit up?

Watermelon Christmas Carvings

Another of my blog readers and students Luis Rodriguez sent it this photo of his watermelon poinsettia. Luis did some carvings for a Toy Drive and this Christmas themed watermelon carving is one of them. Luis started out with an interest in pumpkin carving.  He learned from one the pumpkin carving DVD lessons that I offer in my online shop. Before long, Luis expanded into carving watermelons.

Last, here, are my Christmas carvings from watermelons. In case you are reading this and thinking , “Where do you get watermelons in December?”, Luis and I both live in California where we can still get watermelons. We’re lucky that way. I know one carver who had her brother ship here a watermelon from Florida and it cost her $50. That’s an expensive watermelon. Oh, what people will do for their art. :~)

Anyway, here are my photos of my Christmas carvings.

    Nita,

    Wanting to wish you a very happy holiday and thank you for your amazing inspirations. I was first introduced to this incredible art by you. I have had such great satisfaction watching your free lessons that I actually purchased a few things from you . Living with a very tight low income ,I am trying to save enough money to collect your entire collection which fascinates me. I am disabled and home bound most of the time so this has become a passion! I cant not thank you enough ! One of my wishes for the new year is for you to continue to inspire and create these amazing masterpieces and the other is to become as creative as you are…I wish I had seen this 10 years ago if you were around, my hands are getting stiff and well you know, I not what I use to be. lol Again from the bottom of my heart I thank you
