        Well carved and well painted Joe. Your blending and tones used on the face are spot on.

          Joe, I was wondering, what color did you use on the hair?

            Thank you all very much for the nice comments. I enjoy carving faces and try to make them all a little different. This one must be a favorite, he's so well liked.
            Joe, his hair is pretty much white. I don't remember if I added a touch of something to tone it down a bit.

              Rodster, I agree, I try to make my faces more realistic and not too exaggerated.

                Since that's a mighty fine one of a kind carving I'd have to say that the only thing rarer in this world than the carving is probably the newspaper he's carrying!

                  Thanks Eddy. There are a few of us old guys that still like newspapers.

                        Thanks Terry. Boy that would take a while.
                        Thanks Lionslair. He does look a little cold.
