Think this ones done.

The eagle is done from a 2"x"x 6" bass wood block. His "perch" is a piece of aspen we found in the Wasatch Mountains in Utah. Paint work was done wet into wet and a coat of satin spar poly protects the piece from handling. I named the eagle Aukiki which is the Native American word for the Kankakee river where these birds reside in this area.

Thanks

The pattern I used was a black and white set of images. Now that we just came back from the river and looked at the resident eagles I see I need to repaint the beak as the nares are part of the beak. OOPS.

Now I think its done. The beak paint has been tweaked and I added a few Alder catkins to the "log" it sits on. If i can find one I may add a miniature American flag to this desk top piece.

Its been a fun piece to make but I will definitely not make the mistake of painting another piece without looking at a color photo! Pics are before and after the beak tweak.........
