Another Party-loving Gnome

Here's another gnome I made as a custom order for a Parrot head Club in North Carolina. They refer to the club as a group that likes to "party with a purpose". I can only think of one purpose, but maybe there's more. Anyway, this aging party animal is ready to go, with his can of Land Shark beer and "Fins Up!" hat. I really enjoy making these for people. It's so much more rewarding than just carving for the sake of carving, not that I don't enjoy that. The custom work is just a little better.
Painting this is especially fun. I like coming up with the Hawaiian shirts.
