“Beans” is a bust from a Harold Enlow rough out. He is about 8” tall, so there was a lot of room for details. It’s been a while since I’ve carved much besides Santas. Thanks for looking!

Very nice piece of artwork. I like the way you antiqued the clothing.

Nice job Mike. I like Mr Beans, he looks like he likes his right out of the can. Another loveable character, in a fine line of characters.

One of the coolest carvings I have seen. Carving is awesome and the coloring is perfect.
