Tuesday morning I spent some time on the net googling photos, drawings and other art work to come up with a working sketch to work from and then roughed out the head while at our local carving gathering. This morning I finished the head, worked on the hat and pretty well finished up that part of the piece. I think I will keep it a bust as even that will make a pretty large piece when done. The head with the hat on measures right at 7". The hardest part was getting the eyes right and I think once they are painted they should look pretty good. At least I hope so. I stuck a smoke in his mouth as he was a heavy smoker as were most cowpokes. The hat really adds to the character.
