New Series of Shorebirds

Herring Gull - poplar wood - cut, shaped and sanded -
ready to paint
I'm starting a new series of wooden, cut, shaped and carved (details) shorebirds. I grew up in New Bedford Mass where, as children, we made many trips to the beaches around the Cape.

The shorebirds scurrying around the beach flats always fascinated me - the long legs and the long beaks - and those gulls!! You love them or you hate them - so I'm starting this series with a common Herring Gull.

She'll be mounted on a beautiful piece  of driftwood.
