WOODCARVING:
Just a little about me. I am Michael Pittman, better known as ‘Pitt”. There are two great fields of the arts that interest me; Wood Carving and Photography. I try to incorporate the two when I can. My love for woodworking comes from my dad and great grandfather; both who were well refined in their respective talents. With this being said, I am a self- taught wood sculptor, by just removing wood that does not belong. Woodcarving has been occupying my life for the past 25 years. I have become very respectful to the use of wood that would otherwise be sent to the chipper. I will use any kind of wood at my disposal, though American Black Cherry and American Black Walnut are my woods of choice.

My carvings have there own uniqueness and individuality. I see, feel, and then become. Just pure enjoyment. Levels of detail vary and the pieces are visually pleasing to the eye.
I am a proud member of the ‘wood carvers of Etsy’ team.
This Esty shop is the only place that I sell my woodcarvings online.
They can be purchase in person at “The Villa” in Arthur, IL.
Thank you for all of your time spent here and I invite you to look through my store and come back often :-)

PHOTOGRAPHY:
I'm a self-taught artist who has always had a great appreciation for color and nature. I discovered my passion for photography when my grandmother let me use her Brownie Hawkeye and haven’t been able to stop since!

NOTE: WATERMARK WILL NOT APPEAR ON PURCHASED PRINT
All prints are signed and dated on front or back, (your choice).
I use a Professional Lab for my 20 x 30’s and 20-30x panorama prints. They use Fuji Crystal Archive photo paper in a RA-4 photochemical process. They expose your digital image on to this paper and develop it in traditional photo chemicals, giving your print a richer image quality than any ink-jet printer process. All prints are to the edge of the paper in matte or glossy finish (depending on which paper finish is appropriate for the image.)
Please message me to ask about photos in the size you prefer.
20x30 $80.00
Panorama prints 20 or 30 x 60 depending on the print.
Minimal cropping may need to be done to have your photo meet the desired size.

I will personally print the sizes below on Epson Premium Photo Paper in glossy.
or for 13x19 on HP Advanced photo paper, glossy
5x7 $6.00
8.5x11 $20.00
13x19 $30.00
