cedar tailwing? knotty pinetail?

cedar tailwing? knotty pinetail?

Making some bird pieces. This one is carved from a piece of cedar I found on a walk years ago that looked like the head of a golf club with a bit of the handle. It was hard knotty wood but I was able to carve it without breaking the tail somehow. It smelled so good while I was carving

Christmas puzzle

Christmas puzzle

It started with the scrap from one of the boys wood models, similar to the one top L. in the photo, cut into over 100 pieces, rough edges sanded, and a 2' x 2' plywood board from the garage, stained with some red and prussian blue paint. The idea was a puzzle with no predetermined solution. Sam and Danny did helicopters and patterns that inspired the final spiraling design

Unsure if my efforts to save the mosaic would be successful, the day before the commissioned art was to be presented I did this painting to fit a frame I had on hand, for insurance. I presented both portraits to Bob. He seemed to like them, as much as anyone ever seems to like their portrait.
