Spring Chick-a-dee

Terry is having a grand time carving Chick-a-dees. Mainly because this is his last hitch to carve before summer. They're something he can start and finish this time of year. When he comes home in three weeks there will be yard work to do, something he is already lamenting about. :) This little guy flew to a good home which brought tears to the eyes of its new owner. Terry so enjoys it when people like his work. This will probably be the last post until next winter. Hope everyone has a good summer!!

2012 Wood Duck

Terry was commissioned to carve this Wood Duck after last years Artistry in Wood. He finished it the day before it was due to enter this year. He tried a new carving technique on it after attending a seminar at the Columbia Flyaway in Vancover Washington last fall. He always fusses over what is wrong with his carvings, yet he did quite well taking a Blue Ribbon in catagory and a Green for Best in Division. The Wood Duck has gone to a good home in Wasilla, Alaska. He also received a Blue Ribbon for the Chick-a-dees posted below. Their new home is at his Mom's in Big Lake, Alaska. He'll be carving away next time home as it's his last hitch to carve before break-up and Summer when he can play in his new boat.

Chickadee Pair

It's carving season for Terry. This is his first hitch off since last spring that he can devote his time to carving. To get him back in the groove he decided to carve Chickadee's. I personally think they are rather cute and real looking. He plans on giving this pair to his mom after he enters them in the Artistry in Wood competition during Fur Rondy in February. The single chickadee has already flown away to its new home. He's currently working on a Wood Duck and when it's completed I will post pic's of it. Hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I do.
