Holy Cheese Cow I had not idea you posted this Phil! Thank you very much!!
Carving decoys has been a true love of mine for 33 years and it is a burning passion of mine. Now that I am almost 45 years old I can honestly say that Redhead was the first bird I carved and painted with the use of my cheater glasses! I never realized how out of focus my eyes were until I started focusing on close objects other than print.
Thanks for all the kind comments everyone. I was stoked when they put a blue on him!
