  • Jesus and recently departed portrait

    My former music minister's wife passed after battling cancer so I thought this might make a nice tribute.
    I'm still trying to decide if I should "add" some length to her blouse so there isn't a big empty space in the middle, or at least make some sort of design, etc. What do you think?
    This is made from the back of a utility panel using a size 0 blade. It is 8 1/2 X 11. I plan on framing it for the family and presenting it to them tomorrow.

    Nice tribute Bubba and a unique design too.
    I would try to extend the blouse to fill the void if you can, or maybe some wording

      For some reason, I saw not only flowing robes, but angelic wings as well....

        As already said, nice tribute. Another idea would be to do her name along with some music notes in another piece of wood and attach to this between the hand and woman. Looks to me like a fairly good size rectangle would fit there. Could even shape it like a scroll.

            It proves she is with HIM now and HE was with her in life. A wonderful gesture.

                Hi Bubba,

                Looks good. When I saw it I immediately thought "In His Arms" would be a fitting addition.

                    Thanks to everyone for all the great comments. I believe the pattern I use for this is still in the vault. I'll have to check...

                    Well, I didn't see it in the vault, but here it is again for anybody who would like to use it. It takes some careful manipulation to fit a likeness into the empty space where the loved one goes.

                    If you have a pattern of someone already and don't have the capability of incorporating it into this pattern, just send me a PM and I'll see what I can do to help.

                      Thanks Bubba...
                      It's a good pattern to have. Not looking forward to using it though...

                          A wonderful tribute Bubba. Very nice cutting & I agree with extending the blouse to fill in. You are a blessed friend. Thanks for sharing.

                            Beautiful tribute and thanks for sharing the pattern, Bubba,
                            I thought the empty space was left intentionally for her name or
                            a Bible verse.

                              It wasn't intentional...that's just the way the picture was. However, I am going to do exactly as you suggested and add the words, "Safe in the arms of Jesus" in the blank space.
                              Thanks for the comment.
