I have been collecting waterfowl and shorebird decoys for decades, but this is the first time I have carved and painted one. It is a Wood Duck Drake in a sleeper or resting pose. It was carved from a basswood blank and painted with oil-based paints. I used a good deal of "artistic license" in the details, but for a decorative decoy, it is fine for me. I was lucky to have a great piece of driftwood to act as a base if it ends up on display somewhere in our home. As you can see, even without a keel or bottom weight, it still floats in a good position. I hope you enjoy these pics taken of it this morning.
