Procrastination Howler..
« on: April 28, 2016, 10:02:15 AM »
This howler started as an idea back in 2012.  I selected a horn, then roughed in the carving of a coyote stalking a hen pheasant.  That's as far as I went.  I then layed the horn on my bench where it sat for 4 years.  Many the time I picked it up, only to put it back down.  Just did not have the desire to work on it?
This week I finally picked it up again determined to see it through.  I started carving on the coyote first.  That completed, I moved on to the hen pheasant.  Things just began to fall into place.  Completing the horn, I turned a new delrin toneboard to replace the walnut one I had originally made for the howler.  So finally after 4 long years I can call this howler done.
I cannot explain why I put it off?  Call it lack of desire? "Procrastination?"  Who knows?  Anyway, "Thanks for looking".
