Uncle Sam Collectible

I just finished
this guy recently. He is a special order Uncle Sam.

Uncle Sam is high up there on the Folk Art collectors list!

I had fun making him. He is very similar to a piece I did in 2011. Round body, long stick like legs.

His hat is made from paper. I painted the wide blue stripe and red stripes onto the hat.

He proudly carries his grand ole flag!

Just wanted to share him with you. I feel like I’ve been bit by the Creativity Bug and I have LOTS of ideas brewing for new pieces to come.
I am working on some more mermaids, hope to have them finished soon.
I am also working on a special order for my friend Ruby Jean. She’s been a bit MIA lately, but will be posting on Monday to explain where she’s been. Can’t wait for that:)

Thank you so much for stopping by, see you soon!

Michelle, he is adorable. I may just have to add another Uncle Sam to my group, but do hope you'll create a lady Liberty. ;-)
