Donation for Edison Sportsman

This is a Oldsquaw decoy I just finished for a donation to our local Sportsman's Club. It will be auctioned off at our annual dinner later this month. We support the hunter safety program, and the high school trap shooting team, baseball team, and other causes.

Bittern in-process photos

Here's some pictures of the bittern I've been working on. The final bird will be carved from tupelo and painted in artist oils.

I'm starting to build up a form to put clay on to get a feel for the pose I want to carve.

Adding Clay to the form

Now that I'm happy with the pose I've modeled, it's time to carve it out of wood.

Starting to paint
