This little guy is carved from a 1 1/2" x 8" basswood block. Painted with craft acrylics thinned to a "wash" and then finished with polycrylic. Not sure if he should go on a hiking stick or into a flower basket.

Thanks for looking.

Myself, I'd go for a garden sentinel.

I think its time for you to get some bigger hunks of wood, and start making more sculptural stuff. I know that might not be the easiest thing to do. A local fine woodworking shop, Johnson's Workbench has basswood up to 4 x 4 x 18. I found a box elder that was ripped apart during the winter, but don't know who the empty property owner is.
