Many thanks Hilltiki. I have knocked out quite a few carvings and this one
is probably the closest I have come to the original concept. I still have to
tone down the color a little so it doesn't look so new, but a little fake
tobacco patina will do the trick. Usually something changes at midstream and
I follow the wood...this time the wood followed me.

Thank you Benz, I was hoping that the famous former Mr. Pelican would
like it

That does look like a sneaky bunch, doesn't it, Hodad? Just the sort of guys who
would talk behind Mindimbit's back. By the way, Mindy DOES want to
go west, would you put him up? He sees pics of your store and always
bugs me about it.

So what is the direction of the big guy? The tres hombres just completed look pretty happy enjoying some last rays of sun. Nice job! That bird has some character.

Conga, the diversity of your work is wonderful.

The bird is a beautiful work of art. The colors, the posture just a class carving all around.

100 pages of top notch, original work, congrats Conga!

Proud to have you as a fellow Badger State carver!

Careful there Mr Conga, you might be getting a good reputation and we'd be wanting that right? HELL YEAH! Your pieces are getting such great personalities and even starting to Talk BACK? DON'T Let them get away with that as it will only get worse. Still having those Scary dreams THANK YOU!
Did you get the idea yet that I'm Loving your work?? Cut that OUT.

Will this finally be page 100? Lemme see.
Well, thanks for all of you guys dropping in over here the last
few days, Johnny P, Lakesurfer, Howland, Ben, Seeksurf, LLT and
SavageTiki. I appreciate the comps on the bird, and I did make
some body progress on the big feller last night, and probably will
chizz a little more tonight.
As for direction? You know me better than that Johnny, What direction?
This one is gonna be another Conga "winger"...or "seat of the pants"
carving....or "nightmare carving" as Ben might call it. I am just
letting the chisels go where they want to. It's fun.
It's also getting cold so I'm working inside...pics in a day or so.
Thanks again.
