Default :Carved Button Humming Bird:

Well this morning I wanted to carve something with out alot of work. Small woodens buttons are just the thing.Ive not carved nor painted a humming bird before so it was fun.

Heres the larger one Id carved also earlier.

I hope you like it,my wife is going to sew it on my old Sunday best shirt. Boyyyyy I will be all dude-it-up then.

Your thoughts or comments are always welcome.

Thanks for looking,Forrest

P.S. Guess now I can be a member of CSI,seeing I have a hummer now.

Forrest, I still don't know how you do it, carve such small things and have them turn out so good, then paint them! As always, great job!

Nice job. The paint jobs are great too, thats alot of detail in such a small place. I especially like the old water wheel button.

P.S. If you want to be CSI Miami, you need a good pair of sunglasses too...

Wow!! Terrific job on both carving and painting, especially the water wheel. What do you use for painting? A one hair brush or something? Thanks again Joe.

Forrest, my friend.....how DO you think these things up??? Your imagination is unlimited, no question about it. I love both the buttons. What blows my mind is...you tackle these itsy bitsy teeny projects with a SCENE, yet, and not just one item. Incredible job, as usual, my friend. I am constantly in awe! Bonnie
