This is another Bishop rough out from sbrownwoodcarving.com. I enjoyed carving him and tried to change him up a little from the supplied pictures. I dug the mouth out to give him a big yawn and let his hair stick out, kinda like some of Mitch Cartledge’s Santas. I kept the curls on the ends of the beard and hair, but decided to give him a plaid flannel night shirt. Mark Akers demonstrated some painting techniques one night at a seminar and inspired me to try a lot of different things with painting, including plaid. I keep practicing on it anyway! Thanks for looking!
