Cowboy finished from Wayne Laramore rough out. I got this mostly finished in a two-day class with Wayne back in November, but got around to the rest of the details and painting today.Lots of fun carving this one and carving with Wayne. It was a great class! Thanks for looking!

awesome as usual, Mike !!
I now know first hand what it takes to get those delicate facial features “just right”.
I should have my 3 cowboys finished by next summer.
again, excellent job.

Been waiting for your next project…Worth the wait…

The carving is fantastic… the color is spot on…and the application of said paint is perfect…Not easy, I’d bet…

Very cool…Another Super piece…Always puts a smile on my face…Makes the kids say, “what’s up with gramps!?”....

Another in a long line of grand slams. Mike your characters are the best. This guy makes me think of Sam Elliot with a few age lines, maybe a future Sam.
