Final pelican update
I'm calling this pelican finished even if there are a couple of tweaks left to do. I think there will always be a couple of tweaks left to do on some pieces. The final brush stroke is always difficult to predict at times and often what I mentally call the last stroke is the stroke that overworks a section and sends me into despair about my ability as an artist.
The tweaks on this piece won't be enough to push it over the edge, so it remains safe. I rather like having this fellow gazing at me accusingly in the studio. However, if someone would like to give him a good home, he will be available for sale in my Etsy store soon, so keep an eye out for him. I know he'd love to come and stay with you too.
