Small Mallard Drake

For several years I listened to Terry talk about wanting to learn how to carve ducks. I even bought him a couple books on the subject, but he learns best by example. We live on a lake and feed the wild ducks every summer. There were a couple years we got what was supposed to be wild ducks and raised them. They even thought Terry was their mom and followed him all around the back yard. That has been one of the great delights of living on a lake is the wildfowl that visit us. At the 2005 Holiday Craft Fair he met Rick Scott who was displaying his wood carvings and informed Terry he was planning on teaching carving. Terry signed up and went to his first class in January 2006. This Mallard Drake is his very first carving. It's made out of cotton wood, about 8 in. long and 4 in. tall. It's a good first carving despite all the mistakes he's so quick to point out.
