This is a little gnome relaxing on a toadstool. The gnome is a Floyd Rhadigan pattern, published in Wood Carving Illustrated Issue 63, Summer 2013. Floyd’s gnome was around 7 inches tall; mine is 5.5 inches tall, carved from basswood, dipped in BLO, then painted with acrylic paints.

Nice job! Looks like he’s having a good time. Don’t gnomes have jobs, like the rest of us? Oh, wait, I’m retired. Never mind! :)
