Your welcome, That piece sat outside for 2-yrs, waiting for something to show it's self. The pigment fially showed its feathers, a light sanding revealed the contrast, and boiled linseed oil brought out the warm colors, The chick was almost discarded. It was a cut-off that had the little one hiding in it, Never noticed a heart, How about a pic?

Hoping your enjoying them.
