Here is the latest face carved and now painted. Knowing that he would be an older gentleman I gave him gray hair. When I painted the hat it just looked too new so I scuffed it up some as if this one is his favorite and he has been wearing it more than a day.
I will need to cut out his lower portion but since I do all my band saw work outside it may be a bit before I get around to this due to our wonderful weather. When I do he will donning a pair of coveralls, striped coveralls to be specific. I am not sure if he will be a full body carving or a bust carving, probably leaning towards a bust carving at this point.
as always happy trails
