A commission/trade

Sometimes it seems what we want does not have to include money. This wood carving was created as a commission for a new found friend. We both had something each other wanted and we decided that a barter was in order.
This is one of my Santa ornaments that I like to carve. It was made specifically for my friend. When it arrived he was more than pleased with his new heirloom! Carved in basswood, And done in my usual finishing ways. Painted with acrylic washes and given a coat of Howard feedNwax. Hope you enjoy taking a peek at this guy :)
