    He just wanted a standing open mouth with the pecan. I try and add action with the feet on standers when possible.

    When you skin a ringer and it has a big full head and solid pocketfeathers you know it's gonna be a good day.

    LOL I fixed it for you Jim

    Brooke have I ever mentioned to you how much I hate those pale blue feathers

    The head took six pellets
    toothpicks and floral wire - I couldn't live without them

    88B85EED-FC8C-4D47-86A8-9519B3E032C3.jpeg I haven’t posted lately because my background was such a mess, but I have been working. Last weekend I finally covered the walls in the addition and today I worked on some finish work. Still have some heads to paint.
    18 down, 16 to go, then back to waterfowl, squirrels and fish…..
    Blessings y’all
