Height: 9"         Wood: basswood
Finish: Linseed oil/artist's oils


This was inspired by an illustration by Rien Portviliet.  It was in a packet of do-it-yourself color pencil art featuring his work.  I later discovered it on his book 'Gnome Music'.  I actually bought the packet for this illustration and buried it so I wouldn't get distracted from an overdue commission.  The tactic didn't work, but this was one of those high karma projects so pattern development, carving, and finishing went like lightning.
