Utah State Fair Here I Come!! WIP Done

It's always a great feeling when you can pull a piece out of trouble and then finish it. I changed the lettering on this painting with my husband's help as a consultant. We discussed several font options using photoshop to do mock ups. What a great way to use Photoshop! Then I had to try my hand at painting the lettering we chose. After some prayer and several deep, I tackled the lettering where I surprised even myself! So I will sign and seal this painting, then it is ready to go.

My dilemma now is to decide which sculpted piece I will enter in the creative arts competition of the fair. My husband's first choice is this Santa
I wonder though if this one might be better?
What do you think? I will probably go with the Santa, but I would love some feedback on this! Thanks in advance!

As a santa lover and gourder myself santa wins, I was wondering how you weight your gourds to keep them from being top heavy. Thanks Zelda

Hi Zelda, Thanks for stopping by! I don't usually have to weight them if they have a base such as the coat trim, or a wood plaque they sit on. I have used lead shot for a weight in some of my work though.
