I admire the craftsmanship and the dedication to hand carving decoys and it's something I certainly don't posses, but that Gaddie looks like he has a brain tumor.
That's pretty funny. I've been kinda branching out lately on style. Getting bored with what is usually called "contemporary" decoys... where the object is to look more or less exactly like the duck. I have been looking a lot at old decoys with funky lines. Humps where there aren't on a real duck, weird shapes and color patterns, exaggerated features. I dunno why, but I just like those decoys better. I way exaggerated his crown and it does kinda look like he got a good bump on the head!
