Wood Carved Kestral

So I was updating my pinterest site and decided to add
some of my wood carved birds I've done over the years.
Somehow I never posted this one.
An American Kestral.
Created several years ago. I made the legs from welded wire and epoxy.

I carved the bird them placed him on a natural deer horn,
Created the stones and rocks from water putty.
carved the cactus from wood.
A true labor of love, it takes me around 3 months to complete a project like this.

You're a true artist Lynn. This wood carving is great. I found a baby kestrel once in our street and I'll tell you, except for the youth of that one this is identical!! Diane

P.S. I took it to the bird farm and I'm sure it had a good start at life.

Lynn
It is true to say that you are the most talented artist I've had the fortune to come across. Whether paper, fabric, metal or wood you tackle it with ease and the results blow me away time after time.
A labour of love.
If I had even a pinch of your talent I would count myself lucky, I can but dream.
Wishes
Lynne
