Re: Some of my wood carvings ......

Heck, where do I get the crote skins? I don't see a website link. Or a quote anywhere. Would make a great gift for m...

Re: Colored pencil drawing .....

Nice. All I'm good at is cartography, satire cartoons and murals to a lesser extent. Yet I have a lot of practice in those areas. If you ever need a map of my home territory or a map of a year's tropical systems in the Atlantic for general use, I'm your man I guess.

Painted Bluff Field Guide TVA property

I don't know how to post pics right now but the PBS pictographs I cleaned up with Alabama Arch and TVA include crotalus horridus, agkistrodon piscavorus and an unknown catfish.

I'd love to have one of those walking sticks for herping, ghosttowning and cemetery hunting. I think a lot of people here on fhf would say likewise.

I feel that PFs should be used mostly for "paintings" than "true" photos. Although that opinion is biased toward personal experience.
