    Greetings everyone,

    After putting out a request for a Rainy Mountain Charlie bust some months ago, fellow Planet member Antonio (aka spider gerusalem), came through. Thanks again Antonio!

    This was a delightful project and wouldn't mind doing another, if I can find one, as color and pattern combinations on the blanket alone are seemingly endless. I went for a simple broad stripe pattern with a stylized horse and rider on the reverse. Must be the happy times he is thinking about.

    Lovely job, this bust was the very first I bought when I started painting over 10 years ago, received it on a Friday and spent the whole weekend painting it. Needless to say it turned out a disaster hehe, from then on I gained a bit of experience and found the time and effort to do it all over again. Turned out much better in the end :).

    Howdy Ralph! For the blanket there is such a multitude of colors and patterns both simple and complex, its like a blank canvas. I like the one Tony did fairly recently with the geometric pattern. Thanks for looking him over and commenting!
