I had a piece of wood left over from the Tasi carving and have now started carving the egg of the Great Auk. I have a great reference book that gives me all the details, I will show you the egg when completed as well as a few other gems......

I thought I would take the time to show you my latest painting I just completed tonight, that of a Leopard. It took me a few months to complete as I have so many things on the go that I never seem to have time. I get up every morning at 4.30 am and drive 50 km one way to work, and the same back. I tend to stay up till midnight working on my art when I'm not tired.
Also as a collector of bird eggs I have some of the most wanted eggs in my collection. These are eggs of some of the rarest birds and indeed birds that are now extinct. But let me say most of my eggs were carved by myself using Basswood. The same wood I used to carve the Tasmanian Wolf. I just hate to see wood go to waste.
