    Finished this bust for a friend of mine out in Seattle. He is a Vietnam Vet with the 101st Abn. Div. Each 4th of July they have a Pig Roast and a bunch of Abn. guys gather for it. They have vets from WWII to present. They also have a raffle to help pay for the roast. The bust will go into the raffle. The figure was done in oils (flesh) and acrylics.

    I bet you will get tons of compliments if you could afford us some close-ups of this beauty.

    All I could say with these three pics is that the base is great.

    Thanks Michael and Carl. Unfortunately I don't have a good setup to take pictures. These were the best of the bunch. Even these have glare from the light and wash out the shading. As with the painting I will try to improve on the pictures. The base is Olive wood and Ebony? I purchased it at the MMSI in Chicago last year from a vendor at the show. Nick RS4

    Thanks David. I sent a figure last year and the group sent back a book with signiatures of "The Band of Brothers" that attended and some others as well. So it is quite a gathering of vetrans!
