Carving the heron...

These long necked birds, whether they be herons, cranes or egrets, are a sure sell for the professional wood carver.  Not necessarily a fast sell but they will always find a new home....

This one is carved from the upper portion of a blue spruce tree.  It's actually a 'practice heron' for the one to be carved from it's parent stump.  This stump is on 4th Ave (near Morain) in Kennewick, WA and I will start carving it on Monday, 5 August 2013.

You're welcome to drive past and honk but the location is private property [so I cannot invite you] and there is no parking on the street.

The finished sculpture on 4th Ave is expected to be about 6 feet tall.
