I’ve been working on a few folk art Robins over the last month. Robins are the quintessential early bird, and are common sights on lawns across North America. After a good rain or lawn mowing, you will often see them tugging earthworms out of the ground. Robins are popular birds for their warm orange breast, cheerily cheer-up cheerio song, and early appearance at the end of winter. Robins are familiar town and city birds, and equally at home in wilder areas, such as mountain forests and the Alaskan wilderness.
These folk art bird carvings of a Robins are carved from Basswood. I used milk paints, various stains, and techniques to age the carving.
