Toy Soldier #2

6"x4" oil on door skin. This may or may not develop into a series. I am not painting these little guys with that purpose in mind. They are great value studies and they are readily available. This is "Stands with Rifle Joe". I was going to paint "Crouches Talking on Radio Joe" but chose this little guy instead. These guys are legion: there's "Kneels Launching Mortar Joe", a couple of "Marching Joes", a "What the Heck was that Noise?! Joe", and the list goes on. No matter which set of these soldiers you buy, they all have the same generic set of "Joes".
