The hairstyle is what sets off the piece. It's know as a Squash Blossom. If your a Star Wars fan you'll note that Princess Leia also put her hair up this way. You will also note from the photo that I've left the eyes closed. Haven't decided whether to open them up or not. I kind of like it this way. She'll be wrapped in a Hudson Bay Blanket, probably red and there will be a little Turquoise in the final mix. Should be a colorful piece.
Hope you like her so far and there are a couple more photos in the Gallery and your comments are appreciated and welcomed.

This will wrap this little scene up. Thought I would show you how I go about creating the little, or even big, signs for my carvings. It's a pretty easy process and one easy to get the hang of after a little practice. The secret is the brush and a steady hand.
There are a bunch of photos in the Gallery. Hope you like this little scene and I look forward to your comments.
Thought I would give this one a little twist by putting a derby on his head instead of the usual Stetson. Being the Boss he's probably not in the sun all day so doesn't need that wide brim as he probably spends most of his time with his nose in the books or down at the bank trying to wrangle another loan. He's about 15" tall with the base so it's a nice piece that will command attention. I gave the horse a snaffle bit and you can see a metal rear cinch just behind his leg.
Hope you like him and there are more photos in the gallery. Comments welcome.
