As usual, LumberJocks has shown an interest for the photos that we really don’t want to share! So, I reluctantly post this first sad attempt of an Eagle here…NOT in my projects.
I do agree with my hubby that Eagle #2 is much better! Oooh, I hate it when he’s right! ;~)

Thanks for sharing. It’s not that bad, but then I guess you never would have been happy with it, knowing you could have done better and every time you saw the door you would have beat yourself up for not fixing it. I guess you could have tried patching it like the last door, but then that patch wasn’t at the focal point of the entire door and this one would have been.

Well, I do think the second is a lot better than the first and one of the reaons people come here is to see people making progress. That being said, the first is still WAY better than I could do. Thanks for showing us the progress you are making.

Amazing how small changes make huge effect. Good change. Live and learn. If you had left it as you first had it, it would still have been a hand made family art piece full of the same feelings and memories, only you would have seen supposed imperfection. Everyone else sees the work and love that went into it. Thanks…...........

I certainly wouldn’t call the first one sad. While there may be some proportion issues it is certainly an impressive first. Both are good.

Thanks all! What bothered me most was that not only did I know BUT my hubby knew it wasn’t my best work. And I lost all that time trying to fix something that I knew wasn’t right, instead of just letting it go and moving on to a new door. I think that I have a pretty artistic eye but proportions are always where I tend to hit a rough patch. Thank goodness for Google Images! There is usually a good deal of royalty free animal photos to help me out on proportion issues. But of course now I have an eagle template for “next” time that I know looks right.

ah yes.. the learning curve. Now the question is: how many more times will you persist with something before finally letting it go and moving on.
Great eagle by the way!
