McMurray continues to push the envelope at Rendezvous

On a bitterly cold and windy day in Ridgway, Cindy McMurray pours some gas in her chainsaw and prepares to continue working on a wood sculpture that breaks new ground in her carving career.
She normally enjoys carving human figures in dancers’ and lovers’ poses, but today she is carving a tree-shaped birdhouse that stands about six feet high.
“I’ve never done anything like this before, so we’ll see how it turns out,” she said with a laugh.
