Coming from you that means a lot Frank.

the length of the head is about 7", give or take, and about 3 1/2" wide, give or take. Trying to make it semi-life size. It's fun. we'll see how the rest of the body goes.

HI Paula,
Nice Job On the Eagle Head!
Very realistic looking.
Are you planning on doing any more with this wonderful piece?

Yes

Thanks Chucky,
it's a commission for a guy who collects driftwood. He wants the eagle mounted on a big branch he had found. He wants it to look like it just landed, so i will need to build the whole body.

Hi Paula, Nice to have you

Hi Paula, Nice to have you back. The eagle head is amazing, Nelson is right, I could look it for hours trying to catch all of the details. Can't wait to see how it evolves.
