Little Wooden Soldier Boy Vintage Toy

6x6 inches / oil on panel

From the chubby wooden wheels, to the straw tail, to the silky fur trimmed hat, this little soldier boy was an absolute joy to paint. I hope you like him, too!

Thank you, Madison! He was so adorable I couldn't resist! I particularly savored painting the details on this little guy and his horse! Be sure to click for the ebay listing to see all the enlargements! Thanks, Jeanne
