    A fine looking crow with heaps of attitude. I am working on a screaming seagull at the moment, and I hope I am able to get that same sort of attitude into my carving. I would also like to attempt a crow someday. Thanks for sharing Christina.

    Thanks Fred, Don and Bill for looking and the comments. It is fun to hear folks say things that I don't expect, especially on a project that I like myself.
    It is inspiring to carve more small, simplified designs like this one.

    That’s what I am talking about an original design that expresses the artist intention, nice work.

    Hi Nomad, and thanks for the comment. I don't know if it is obvious, but the "frame" is carved into the same piece of wood as the crow. all one piece.

    I've done a whole series of relief carvings that incorporate the frame as well. They have turned out well for me. I carve some of the frames with vines, and gild them sometimes too. I find that a simple angle difference along the edge makes a visual difference that is pleasing like in this one. Thanks for noticing.

    Love the crow but I also love how it's framed. Very nicely done. Makes me want to do some relief carving.

    Thanks for looking Sean and Gary. I appreciate your comments.

    L.P., good to hear from you. I hope you're doing well. I watch the crows around my place everyday, and after nearly 20 years of them watching me feed birds, chickens, peafowl, horses, dogs, and everything else that gets into the feed bins, you would think they would
    trust me, but no. I get that face from everyone of them.

    Excellent crow Christina! I really like how the stain came out on it. It made the carving pop.

    Thanks Bob T, andToy carver, I appreciate the comments.

    Howie, your crow didn't need the ruffles, but I know what you're talking about. Mine needed to be just a wee bit evil, or wary. Yours is whimsical and with the size of the head in proportion to the body, you nailed it.

    Herb, get on it. Crows are fun to carve, and the color is easier than any bluebird you will ever carve.

    Gear Dog, that is a real compliment. Thanks for the Game of Thrones comment. Made my day.

    Thanks Sharon, I always like hearing from you.
