I really like this old timer. The paint really sets him off and just looking at him gives you a feeling of the good times during the height of the fur trapping period of our history. The shirt beading is from a Sioux war shirt design and the little front possibles pouch is just something I made up. The painting and shadows of the hair and beard gives a lot of flow and rhythm to the piece and the big floppy hat frames the piece just right. Am I bragging? Sure! Why not!
I hope you like him too and there are more photos in the Gallery. As always, your comments are welcome and appreciated.
