Apache - Read To Paint

Put the final knife strokes to this one this morning so he's destined for the paint table.  Still have to do some more detail on the lance and shield, i.e. feathers, etc. but it's basically finished.  Should be quiet colorful once it's completed.  Also, was lucky enough to have sold it already to a collector who's been waiting for an Apache carving.

The base is out of red oak and the lance and shield are pegged to the carving and the base.    Hope you like him and your comments are welcome as always.

This one is all finished but the painting.  He's a big one...standing about 22" tall.  He will be holding a lariat loop in one hand and the coiled excess in the other.  Should make for an interesting piece.  Will hopefully use him in a rather big experiment should things work out as I hope.  If not he will be a nice addition to someones collection.   No additional photos on him...just these two.  Comments always welcome.


Here's one I've been working on over the past couple of days.  So far he's looking pretty good.  That base is not the one that will be on the finished article....just something I had handy to make the thing look a little better.  He should be pretty colorful once completed.  No additional photos this time but your comments are welcome as always.
