    Owl Reflection

    Well, I just had to do the little owl in the lastst issue of WCI. Instead of an egg I just used a block, and rounded it sort of like an egg. Left two attached so I had something to hold onto.. One has 12mm eyes, and the other has my ordinary blue eyes. A fun little project. They will end up have a pencil sharpener imbedded in the bottom. 1 3/4" square by 2" long for each. Painted with acrylics. image.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpeg

    Brian, These are about as minimal carving as one can do.

    Thanks Oscar, I think it looks like that too, until you check the eyes.

    they are very well done!

    Great example of a clean carving with a suggestive design. No need for realism.
    Just enough paint to model the birds.

    Leave it to you to come up with some clever ideas, Tom! Great little project! Very well carved and painted as always. Something else I'm gonna have to carve for the grand kids!

    Hi Randy, you can make it a little bigger for a cane topper. I can see it now.
