This a life sized roadrunner I carved for a customer on commission. He did not want it painted only woodburned. I am starting another one for him and this one will be running. It is carved out of basswood with glass eyes and pewter legs.

Very kool. Where is the ACME crate with the explosives? Maybe we’ll see Wylie Cyotee ??

That is a great carving. It looks alive! I love roadrunners but they are becoming very scarce in my area. Be sure to post the next one. I agree with not painting it. It is perfect as is!
