    Excellent job.
    Thanks again to all who provided such kind words! Judge... You DO point out the two parts to this sort of art. There is the carving, and then... there IS the painting. For me, once I\\\'ve made the decision on what species and the design of the piece, the carving seems pretty \\\"doable\\\". Not that I have always done it correctly, but I have a certainly level of confidence. Not so with the painting. I keep at it and I have a lot more fun with it these days, but I put a lot of time into trying to learn more about the mysteries of painting. That just takes time and experience, even with all the wonderful help these days. A friend of mine had a good friend who was a reknown flatwork painter. He told my friend (an excellent carver) that all that carving was just to \\\"get the canvas prepared\\\".

    BTW, depending on where you live in Ontario, you certainly have a fleet of talented carvers up that way!

    This is the gold standard in carving, from concept, to carving to painting. Outstanding Randy!

    I agree with the others that this one is real looking, sure you didn\'t pick this up at the taxidermist?

    Well done and great presentation to boot!

    Thx to you and others for the kind words. 

    Now what kind of an excuse is that, I mean really .... LOL

    All the work I\'ve seen of Randy\'s seems to be the work of divine inspiration.
    There;s seems to be a progression of carver; craftsman; artist;...and then \"something else\"
    This steelhead is \'something else\' Randy!!
