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.

It is full sized, 6 1/2 X 12 1/2 inches. It is available for purchase.

 

 

Butternut Teal

This sculpture addresses the basic form of a full-sized teal. This shape is then enhanced by the innate beauty of the grain configurations seen in polished and oiled butternut wood. Feather patterns and wing designs can easily be discerned.

This beauty is 5 X 9 inches. It is available for purchase.

Puffin Peregrine

This life-sized wooden sculpture captures the drama of an engaged peregrine about to launch after prey.

It envisions the rocky heights of its habitat. Seen in the rock face are visions of puffins-a frequent meal as both live near the coast.

The piece was inspired by a seminar with Keith Mueller in Krausman’s studio in Michigan.

The base is cherry, the bird is tupelo and both are painted in oils. It is available for purchase.
