  • Old World Santa

    Finished painting this Old World Santa yesterday, really was going for something different, but this is we’re we went so there are times the carving changes your mind.

    Mark,

    Your Santa’s always show refinements you seldom see in holiday pieces.

      You may have wanted to go in a different direction, but man-o-man you certainly brought this one home.

        Your Santa's are always full of the Christmas spirit Mark. And this one is no exception.

          I like every thing about this carving, the hair, the base, the walking stick and more the painting is superb too.

            Sometimes when we start down a path it doesn't always take us where we had planned to go, but the final destination is even better than what we had expected . I would say this is a perfect example....

                      I enlarged the carving on the IPad and became even more impressed with how you did your detailing. The fur at the robe bottom and cuffs show the time you spent on this Santa and as always, your works are always over the top in my opinion. Really, really great carving, and the paint, the same.

                        Thanks Earl, appreciate the kind words, yes the fur was a little more time then I usually spend detailing, but i wanted a special one done.
