Carving stumps, sticks and logs with just about any tool that gets in my way.

It's been quite a while since I carved a really big bear so it's time... The Sycamore log in this photo is 6' 3" tall. Thanks to my Mahindra tractor, the log is standing in my studio area waiting to be carved in the morning.
On this piece I will be working for all the realism I can get from my chainsaw. Realism is not something I've worked on a lot but is something I hope to improve on.
Pelicans! A flock of white pelicans few over today while I was preparing the log for carving. I suppose that sooner or later I will have to carve these bizarre birds.
