On bird carvings, denim, and whatever

Today was a lovely spring day and I didn't want to spend it in the studio; instead I took my book and sat in the sunroom for most of the afternoon. For lack of a picture to show, I thought I'd post one of the birds that Jack carved several years ago. I don't know if you can see, but there's a baby tucked under her wings. He used to do a lot of carving (and sold quite a number of loons -enough that he got heartily sick of carving them), but has pretty much given it up now. Every time he does anything in the dust, it seems to affect his lungs. It's too bad, because he was a pretty decent carver. I did get a bit of work done this morning on a denim(what else?)/metal wallhanging I have sketched out and, if you enlarge the picture, you might be able to see a tiny piece of it behind the loon. I think I will 'tease' you with pictures of all the bits and then unveil the whole after it's finished.
