  • Things that a sailor knows well; seagull poop and hawser.

    This is the second caricature sailor that I've carved. The one previously was with a seabag and I kept that for myself. This one with a bollard, seagull poop and a hawser I'm sending to my brother.

      That's a great scene Eddy!.... your brother will love it. Either the sea gulls are kinder down your way or they have poor aim, 'cause the bollard got it all and nary a drop for the sailor .......

              Soggy.... If you live in Florida long enough, it's not if but when, you'll get baptized by a seagull!

                By adding the bird turds are you trying to tell your brother something Eddie??? Hopefully not, just being playfull right?

                  Great painting, especially on the 3rd class crow.

                      Neat little scene Eddy. I can remember winter days when I'd be nearly as hunkered down in my pea coat as that little fellow.

                        I just thought that it would add realism to the scene! When you've spent almost your entire life close to the sea, seagulls and seagull poop are just assumed to be a normal occurrence.

                          JJmg... The 3rd class Corpsman crow is a sticker that has been glued on and painted over with acrylic polyurethane. I cheat a lot. I'm not so much into tradition as I am having fun and adding a bit of innocuous realism.

                            That's where I got the idea! Stood many a quarterdeck mid-watch on that MSC in Sasebo with that cold Korean wind blowin' across India-Basin. The only thing missing on that caricature is an WWII Colt 1911 45-cal. pistol strapped to it's side.
