After our trip up to Woolaroc Museum to see the new placements of my scenes I got my usual recharge after viewing all the fantastic western collections of sculpture, paintings and artifacts. It was time to hone up Old Reliable and get to work on something.
I decided on another Mountain Man and here's the progress so far. The body and base are finished and I started working on the head this morning. That's a corncob pipe in his mouth and he will be wearing a hat....yet to be determined what kind. Hopefully, I can get him done in the next few days as I'd like to finish one more in addition to him before striking out for the Dayton show. I really like the way this is headed but most importantly I like being able to get back to carving.
