Well here he is all painted and ready to be put away until next Christmas.
I painted him and then thought he looked too new, so I put some more thinned paint on him and scrubbed it off and then sanded it a bit.
I did and redid his eyes. Far Guy said at one time “They look wonky!” I worked on them some more! Finally I figured hey I can live with them.
The next woodcarving project; I have something new to work on and my Daisies are the next ongoing woodcarving project.
Love your Santa. I'll be sure to share this with John when he wakes this a.m. He loves woodcarving projects. Enjoy the new week.
He's perfect! Have you thought about making one for each of your grandchildren?
I think Santa turned out terrific. I love him, Good Job!
Yes, Santa looks great! Very creative and nicely done!
Well done, a fine carving indeed. :-)
Wow! That is awesome.
Oh my goodness! That's fabulous! Wow!
The arver is always critical of their own work. that's what makes the carving good.

Hello! I slipped in from Linda and Terrys blog. I envy this creativity that some people have here, either it's flowers, cooking or knitting or now this: carving!! What a lovely looking Santa! And there is absolutely nothing wrong with his eyes - "wonky"? Thank you, I look forward to the daisies!! Love from Solveig in Sweden!
Connie, you did a fantastic job on him! Now, how about a Mrs. Claus? LOL! I know you put many hours of work into him. I can't wait to see the daisies...I love daisies, I just don't want to be "pushing them up" any time soon! LOL! You are so talented!
