This is my latest work. It’s a first for me in a few ways…there is no texture on this bird…I challenged myself to achieve that effect with paint. In addition to being my first smooth carving, it’s also my first shorebird.
The photo I’ve posted here is the finished piece. If you’re interested in seeing the project, I have it on my site as a painting works-in-progress, along with an explanation of how this bird came about. I love the avocet, as it seems to be made for an artist…all sensual and sweeping curves…

Thanks for looking!
