Just finished this Santa, carved from basswood and mounted on a cherry base. He stands 8" tall including the base. This is my final Christmas carving for this year. I carved two Santas, twenty-three ornaments and the nativity. Now it's time to move on to something new.

Here is my first Santa for the 2013 season. Tried something different on this one, a thin wash on the fur and painted eyes. Then, several light coats of Deft lacquer and a coat of Howard's Feed 'N' Wax. I think I like the natural wood. He is carved from basswood and standing on a cherry base. Overall height 11 1/2". Comments welcome.

Jeremiah was purchased and left today for his new home in Yuma, Arizona. Which is ironic, considering I purchased the bark to create Jeremiah from a supplier in Cottonwood, Arizona. Kind of like he's going home.
