    Greetings everyone, glad to see the page making big steps, looks great! I started this fellow about 2 months ago, but its been so darn stinking hot down south, I didn't carve a lot. This fellow is a Falin pattern, standing about 15" tall, the tallest one I have down next to a Steve Brown indian. Holding his favorite "pig sticker", Bowie knife behind his back. Acrylics and BLO. He is sporting the rich tan of a true cowboy. He turned a little darker than I plan so I think he could be Mexican too, although the hair isn't dark enough. Fun to work on these bigger pieces. comments and critiques always wanted and appreciated.

    That is a fine one. I think the skin tone is just right for a cowboy who spends his day in the elements;

          Nice job Eric. 15 inches is a really big carving in my book. You did a great job on the carving and paint both.

            Nice work, Eric! I think the skin tone is just right of a cowboy!

                    Really like the details Carver Eric, especially the folds in the shirt and kerchief. Very nice piece you've presented.

                        Great carving but the painting is equally as good. Nice work Eric.
                        It has been a very hot summer for most of us. I'm 'almost' looking forward to winter. Lol

                          Eric; I don't know much about cowboys or skin tone, but I do know you've done a GREAT job on this fellow. Thanks for sharing;

                            Thanks Mark, Joe, Tinwood, Nomad, Spirit Wolfe and Wayne, you comments were super nice and encouraging. I know at times I get heavy on the paint and not dilute it as much as I like. Rest assured that the BLO will bring out its brightness!
