Default Hobo #2

Well I am back on the hobo project. I have finished carving #2 for the small scene. He is about 7 inches tall and in basswood and ready to paint. I am going to carve a little camp fire and then stage them around it. Anyway, here are some photos.

Thanks for looking!

Corey

They are fantastic as always. I do enjoy you work. Maybe sometime you could put one of your scenes together to post.

Thanks all very much. I have worked very hard on these 2 pieces. I finished the base today and the add ons to go with it. Just have to paint #2 and mount him.

Bobj, you pretty much nailed it.... the name of this carving is: " I Said I Ain't Sharing"

Thank you!

Corey
