Never really tried 3 dimensional carving before, or sculpting as this is what it felt like.. but here is my Hummy for Mom… its carved from Hondo Mahogany.. I put a silk flower in a piece of tiger maple, then gave it a thin coat of blue, which with the stripes looks like water.. then added the hummy on a wire over the flower.. will try to get some better shots of it up soon, having trouble with my photo editing software.. thanks for looking.. Papa
here is another shot of the hummy showing the tail and the flower.. my software is giving me fits… I guess I need to invest in some new photo editing software… always something.. Papa

Way to go, Papa! I’m just working on the handles for my carving tools. Blogging it later.

By the way, GIMP is open source, free, and works better than Photoshop in most cases.
