Happy New Year 2024! from Stinnett Sticks

Happy 2024!

Happy New Year, my friends! I want to thank you all for your support of my work and watching my videos! Early last year, I had a real challenge making the most complicated piece of work I had ever done; the Collared Lizard walking stick. After that I decided to do a few easier snake walking sticks. The Blacktailed Rattlesnake cane was a lot of fun and I'm proud to have it featured on the cover of Treeline's 2024 catalog. I think I'm about ready to tackle another complicated project. Hopefully, soon, I will be carving a desert tortoise project which will take a lot of studying as I don't have any good references other than online photos. I'm sure it will be a lot of fun, though!


My Current Project will Soon

be Available in My Store

Right now I'm working on a western rattlesnake walking stick. This is the local species of rattlesnake that I have always had to avoid stepping on around here. I should have it done in a couple of weeks and hope to offer it for sale on my website. We'll be sure to let you all know when it's available.

Featured Artwork

This painting features Fields Peak, an area that is teaming with wildlife
including: Rocky Mountain Elk, Mule Deer, Big Horn Sheep and Wild Turkey.

A beautiful Cottontail Rabbit has found a shelter under the protective cover of a wild rose bush. The small creature is feeling the warmth of the morning sun after a cold winter's night.

The Bobcat is the smallest wildcat in Oregon.
This one has caught himself a Ruffed Grouse for dinner.

Here in Oregon, us hunters love our Mule Deer. They are beautiful and graceful animals. We chuckle during hunting season, though, because the big bucks are often bedded down safely in town.

A small Winter Wren lights atop a dried up thistle on a misty day. He will only stay there for a moment and then will disappear into the fog.
