Here's one I did the other day. It's a good sized piece when compared to the normal busts....standing about 15" with the base. It's certainly no easier to carve a larger piece but it gives you the opportunity to expand the details a little in both carving and painting. Most importantly, it raises your piece to a different level than what is normally seen and that's what I'm after. The hat is the type worn in the northwestern areas of cowboy country.
Just the one photo so far. Hope you like him and your comments are always welcome.
