As mentioned in yesterday's posting, I am preparing for next month's big show at the 39th Annual Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland. This will be my 17th or 18th year of being a part of this wonderful, town-filled weekend of arts, crafts, sculpture, decoys and all sorts of great food. If you have never attended before, it is a wonderful fall weekend in a beautiful, historic location; lots to do, lots to see, lots to enjoy. Many fine artists, carvers and sculptors from all across this country and Canada will be there. Here is a link to the Festival web site.
See you in mid November!

Posted at 4:45, here is today's little six hour work for the Festival. Image size on this one is 3" x 5". I seem to be in a 'dark mode' these last couple of days. Might have to try and lighten up! Perhaps the next one?

My jaw dropped! The power of the piece is in its simplicity.

Terry, I love the darkness in this piece. You've treated it almost like a negative as if you used white conte on black board. That must have been exciting starting from white and watching that sheen develop as you darkened the values on the bird.

See you next month in Easton!

Lovely raven. I love the way you captured the metallic quality of the plumage and the lost edges are very clever. Thanks for a lovely sunday afternoon. We had a great time. It was great to everyone again.

oops, the missing word is "See" Julia says you should be free to choose the missing word "Great to **** everyone" she's so naughty.
