  • Blue Heron

    Here's a piece I did last month for a silent auction at my grandkids' middle school. 3/4" basswood finished with amber shellac.

      It appears that this relieve was done on a basswood slab with the bark, was it? The bark help show of the fine carving

        Nicely done Arthur. Blue heron are frequent visitors to the cove directly in back of my home during the summer months. That should bring some big $$$ in the silent auction.

                  Lovely heron Arthur! Very well done. I like the warmth of the finish.

                    Here, for comparison, is another Great Blue Heron, also carved in basswood with bark, done for a silent auction fundraiser. This is a Wayne Barton design, so it is chip carving rather than relief. The cat-tails were an added element. Gel stain in the lines, clear finish. I really like your Blue Heron.

                      Thanks, Phil. I like the way your vertical treatment emphasizes the height of the heron with its neck extended. It's always fun to see each other's take on similar subject matter.
