Old Gabe - Painted

Added the hat feathers yesterday which completed this piece.  I had my worries about whether the solid color capote would work but I think it turned out pretty well.  Not every Mountain Man in the Rockies was fortunate enough to have a Hudsons Bay blanket and had to depend on just what was available.  

I spent some extra time letting the waist strap ends hang down over the base to tie the two areas together.  The two pieces were attached but reinforced by epoxy on the back side.  As long as they are not purposely fiddled with they should be fine.  

In sun, he turned out great...He might be an old codger but up there under that hat is a wealth of knowledge on how to live in the mountains and, most importantly, how to stay alive. 

I hope you like him and look forward to a your comments.  More photos in the photo gallery section.
