Default Cowboy Bust Painted

This is my latest carving. This one is done in the style of the great late Claude Bolton. He was very well known for his cowboy busts and this is from one of his patterns. He is from basswood, 3 inch square by 8 inches tall on the base. The head is carved separately and inserted in the neck. Not sure how I will paint him up. Anyway, thanks for looking as always!

Once again you have done an outstanding job. I will look forward to the finished painted carving. How long does it take to do one of those?

Corey,

Another nice work of art! I don't see how you just keep on creating such great carving projects.

Thanks for taking the time to share it with us.

Thank you guys. Bob I got lucky... 3 decent pieces in a row, that's a record for me, you know that... lol. Thanks Rusty I appreciate it. Xplorx4, it just depends. Larger pieces like the last 3 that I have posted take about a week with minimum work during the week. Usually Friday night starting, saturday carving most of the day and Sunday finishing. Paint usually takes half a day or more. Just depends but I had about 10 hours in this one. Started the head at the carving club about 3 weeks ago and then worked on 2 other projects. Did the head yesterday afternoon and last night and did the bust base this morning. It will take me about 3 hours probably to paint this one. Not too bad, but I really enjoy the painting.
Thanks again!

Corey

Corey, I don't think luck has anything to do with it. You are one heck of a carver.
