A little break from my classroom... My girlfriend's grandfather makes these hand-made santa's every year for all the grandchildren. They look great, but as an artist and one that grew up with a carpenter father, I appreciate the time and tedious detail added to each one of these. The Santa with the lantern has over 20 different pieces. Each piece has to be cut, sanded, glued, and painted or stained. I love my girlfriend very much, but I must admit now that we have a house I love her even more because I am able to put these amazing works of art in my house over the holidays. Bill, your work is amazing and much appreciated!
