I love the huge smile and the upturned eyes. And the turned-in feet. Obviously a very warmhearted little character. Beautiful.

Beautiful. You get so much character and fun into your work. As for grandfather, there’s obviously life in the old dog yet.

Looks like my grandfather, who was born in Odessa, Russia/Germany (depends on what date it was) andmoved to the USA and then Canada, then back to the USA, just could not set still. Is the bowl fromOliver Twist, “Please sir, may I have some more.”, or is he just caught red handed after the last of the borscht disappeared? Really like all of your carvings, they keep bringing back memories, both real and imagined. Thank you for sharing.
