      Hugh .... Bill sure used the correct word, "beauty".

      That bird is simply beautiful but there is sure nothing simple about a loon, is there?
      I find your work remarkable.
      Thank you for showing us.
      We would appreciate other views if possible.

        In 2000 I was in up state NY for a few days,heard a loon one morning! I've never seen one but over the years seen picts of them Your bird carvings and other works are so real like and you dont miss a single detail plus your painting is flawless. Just excellent work on your behalf always.

              Hugh, Thats a beautiful carving as is all of your birds. I like the way you did the base to curve around the body.

                        Hugh,
                        It's beautiful! I've wanted to do a loon for years. Even have a cutout. someday...............

                        Tell me, with a loon, do you do soft feathers on the chest and feather groups on the rest of it? I've never seen one in real life and they seem to be "slick" or smoother than usual birds/ducks.

                        Anyway, I love it.

                            Donna the Loon is slick, smooth, mostly small, well defined , hard feathers. The head is stoned, and defined with the burning pen, the breast and belly is fine stoned, and touched up with the burning pen. The rest of the feathers are textured with the burning pen,(no stoning) with as fine burning as possible.
                            Thanks everyone for the very kind comments on the Loon.
