This young lady looks like she would be right at home down at the Flora-Bama Lounge & Oyster Bar in Perdido Key. Her name might be Rita, since that’s all she drinks?

She is based on another of Chris Hammack’s roughouts. I love all the little details that he puts in his carvings and I enjoy the challenge of trying to figure out how he did certain details. Thanks for looking!

Great carving. Very talented. The angle on that first photo though made me wonder… I thought it looked like a lot of other things besides a straw. The side pics look better.

Nice one Mike. I like the painting on her. Chris Hammack has some neat roughouts. I like all of his bar characters. Thanks.

How can you not love a carving with that name? Great job of capturing details and character!

Well, I guess it would be better to just delete that one! Some of you guys have a better imagination than me!

I think I might know her. (jk) Another character filled carving and especially nice job on the ‘make up’. Keep posting!
