Two of my latest efforts all painted up and ready for viewing. The first is the Santa from my pattern book, though I did this version without the goggles this time.
The second is simply a carving doodle that I did the other morning. I have some new paints and though I am happy with how they came out the red that I used for the skin tone has a hint of orange in it so will stick with the previous red that I have used in the past. And as you can see if you layer the colors properly you can modify any color issue that may arise.
So I finally finished up my latest carvings, the two on the right are going to become custom tool handles and the other will get an eyelet and become an ornament. I have been extremely blessed and busy lately with request for my painted study sticks but Christmas isn't that far away and soon I will need to get on some ornaments for the up coming holiday season. To all my friends and family have a safe and happy 4th of July celebration.
