This one was a challenge! The tupelo wood was not big enough to do a full size carving so I reduced the pattern to 1/3 life size. I was inspired by a post card that had a winter scene at dusk with just a lamp light coming through the farmhouse window illuminating a Snowy owl on a fence post. The limited light of the night guided me to under paint the white and give more shadow. This piece looks better in a dim light but my wife took these fantastic photos to show the carving details on the patio. It stands about 18 inches high. Painted with many washes of acrylic paint. I hope you enjoy this one.
Kind regards, Roman
