Mallard Hen

This life-sized, fully detailed wooden sculpture is carved in tupelo. It is painted in acrylics. It is taken from a pattern and study cast by Pat Godin. It represents the completion of a painting course done with Pat in 2017. It is available for purchase.

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 in a private collection.
