Artistic work is not' Free'.

Many people have checked out my work through my blog.
Only a few have made the inquiries about price. The average
amount of time per bird varies, but it takes about '60 to 70'
hours for a medium-size bird: getting the patterns, buying the
Basswood, acquiring the feet and eyes. The process includes,
carving the bird to size, texturing and burning all the feathers,
sealing and painting the bird. This is a painstaking process. I have
tried to make the birds life-like. Please appreciate the amount of
work that is required to create these works of art. I would be happy
to discuss commissions or individual pricing.
