Mallard Hen Study Cast

This beautiful duck is the product of an unique set of circumstances. The original duck was carved by Pat Godin who has won the World Carving Championship 15 or more times. He then had a resin cast made of the bird and used it to teach a painting class in Michigan at Krausman’s studio. So, in other words, it is a world class carving, painted by me.
