Carved this guy yesterday and I was so happy with how he was coming along I went ahead and painted him up yesterday afternoon. I carved him to honor my grampa who served in WWI He then returned home after his time in the service to become a successful farmer. I always remember him in his coveralls and his cigars so of course my soldier was given a smoke. This has to be the smallest cigar I have carved and painted to date. The soldier was carved from a 1" piece of bass wood and carved on the corner.
"Good night and May God bless"
