Who knows what people like. Here's a couple of pictures of a wood carving I've done. I titled it "bite this", a rogue alligator vs. a feisty opossum. Look close at the opossum 'salute'. Thanks.

Got a few more pictures but kind of hard to get good ones, the stuff is kind of small.

Contrary to your name, "there ain't no rust on you" lol. That's really good work. You said they're kind of small --- how big are they?

Thanks for all of the good remarks, there's a lot of time spent on this and I like others to see it. Does no good sitting on the shelf. My picture taking not so good with this cheap camera but here's a few more. They are kind of small-ish. The alligator has terrorized much of the old man and his stuff but the opossum is standing his ground. Sometimes I feel like that myself.

That's where I've ended up, gotta keep things small now days. The city threatens to fine me if I collect any more 'toys' outside. And NO, I don't ALWAYS empty the bottles myself. hic!

A lot of patience to do this but I bet it can be relaxing. Very impressive.

Yeah, a lot of both, I just call it determination and stress displacement. Actually one of the best folk bottle sites is by a guy out there in Kentucky, we've talked a couple times. Check out his site     folkartinbottles.com    there's some cool stuff there. Look under 'artists' Keith Brown he's got most of mine posted. Thanks
