Last pin for the day

When I went to Bethpage Restoration in Bethpage, LI,NY,  I went at the perfect time when this hatter was engrossed in forming some hats.  It was very interesting to see him in action.  He was finishing this black hat for the day....hence the title.  I hope you like him.  Painted with Rembrandt pastels and pencils for details.
