      Errol, Your carving is very good. I like the design, and habitat also. Good clean lines, eyes set properly, and the painting is blended well. Good job! Dick M

            Errol, that's one beautiful little bird, very realistic and painterd perfectly. The mounting sure adds to the beauty of the carving, well done.

                          thank you everyone for the kind compliments. Hugh, I used a sponge like you would use in the kitchen (wife is wondering what happen to hers!!) lol, I use a knife to kinda tear it in strips and pieces, just tear some of it in shreds, then glue it in place, paint it with a green mossy color with some yellowish green. it took me a few trys to get it just right.
