I repeat the bird has landed…..

 

I promised some pics of the finished heron so here it is. I used a torch to flame the entire piece to give it natural shading and finished it with an exterior deft oil applying three coats. Due to the location of the mounting I decided it would be best to cut the tail off and let it appear to be in the process of flying through the wall. As if it is landing inside my living room…… I think maybe it is…….and I’m ok with that……

    I didn’t realize how big that bird is until seeing it on your wall.

    Yea it’s carved to just about the true scale of the heron. Too much? I figure if your going to do it…

We took a walk along the creek tonight. I came to this conclusion: it's all about perspective.
