I think this looks GREAT the way it is - not easy to get that Loose-citidy in figurative work. A great chiseled look! My compliments - AWESOME work!

Re: Home From the Mine

This is so impressive! I love the gesture...so natural and smooth. The looseness of this makes it even better. I can see his fatigue from a hard day's work. The background tells stories too. I do hope you keep this one as is. Please share the new version with us, too, when you've done it. We'd love to see it.

Save this version if you do have a do-over. I love the strength and story.

A really nice and rugged work! I can feel his tiredness and empty beer bottles as they tell a story, too.
