Finally got this guy off my table this morning. Took long enough.....have been working on him all summer. Of course with my Mom's death, visiting relatives, a Yellowstone vacation and ranch upkeep it's a wonder I ever got it done! This piece is aimed for the upcoming Woolaroc Outlaws & Cow Thieves Reunion fundraiser this October. I hope to get a few other Woolaroc associated carvings completed before then.
Bacon Rind was an Osage Chief who was friends with Frank Phillips, the founder of Phillips Petroleum and on whose ranch Woolaroc is located. Quite an interesting character.
Anyway, hope you like him and there are more photos in the gallery.
