This a Santa recently completed. He is carved from pine taken off an old pallet. This is the first time I've carved pine that had this much detail. It actually took the detail well. I plan on painting it with oil paints thinned with boiled linseed oil. I don't paint a lot of carvings with oil because of the extended drying time. Usually takes about a week before I can apply the finish coat. I will post up when I finish painting him.

Here's another Santa just finished up. I've been busy carving ornaments for family and friends and along the way a Santa or two.  Hope you enjoy.
