Hessian Soldier by artist Howard Rains

I bought the gem on the right at Blue Genie, which is an arts fair held around the holidays in these parts. (The Blue David on the left is one I did years ago during a blue-face phase--Blue Elvis can be found here.) I've been meaning to show off the Hessian on the blog for ages, but haven't gotten around to it until now.

The artist is Howard Rains and he sells them on Etsy, so you can get your own should you be so inclined. What's a Hessian? Click here and you can go to Wikipedia.

I was fortunate enough to visit Howard Finster back when he was alive. Howard Rains' work reminds me of the other Howard's cutouts. Clever!!
