    It's been awhile since I carved anything, a long while, but last week I started working on a decoy urn I had to a friend. He and his wife wanted a hen mallard that was a rester/semi-sleeper type of bird, and one that could sit on the mantle and go into the water once a year. So, after a long hiatus from hacking on wood, this is where I am as of this morning. Now it's time for a lot of brush strokes and some time on the airbrush blending. I think it should turn out just fine. Regardless of the outcome, it's been good to be back at the bench. Hopefully now I can start getting caught up on things.

    Plugging away this morning. Won't get much farther than the head this week as duck season will get in the way.

    Thought I'd get closer to done today, but had an appointment this afternoon. Maybe finish the paint tomorrow, maybe the next day. Getting close.
