“Skeeter” is a rough out by Dale Green. He was fun to carve and paint. I changed up the face a little and painted a little different. I struggled the most with the fishing rod! It was a little challenging to get it tapered and rounded but it turned out okay. It was much easier to paint the plaid shirt! Thanks for looking!

That’s so cool! If my FiL was still alive, I would make one for him. That guy could catch fish like nobody I’ve ever seen.
