This is a 1/3 life size Northern Loon carved from tupelo, textured with a power carver and a pyrography tool. Acrylic paints were used to finish the project and then the bird was mounted on a piece of hardwood.
Enjoy!

Wow, Roman, you’d better put a net over it before it flies off!

Beautiful carving! It’s very realistic and I love the wake on the base.

When I started the piece I wanted to show an alert attitude. I got that with a gentle twist of the neck and head pointed slightly upward. The base had to follow with ripples, showing some action. Thank you all for the nice compliments.

That is beautiful and so is your workmanship.

Really nice piece Roman. Along with the others I have to say that the base sets it off very well. Birds and boots are a rather strange combination…. but you have them both down.
