“Mushrooom” for fence post

This next piece is the first one I have completed in this manner. Notice in the last photo there is a screw dowel mounted in the bottom. It is so the piece can be mounted on a post or deck railing outside. I will be making more of these. The bird was carved by Sam McKamie, i tweaked it a little and painted it in one shot paint. Again, Barbara Kaiser and Anthony Bozzuto can be thanked for the wonderful seashells. The Marble Cullet is from Rick See of West Virginia.—I was fortunate to obtain several Kennedy 1/2 dollars so I am adding them with the Susan B Anthony dollars
