  • Second portrait

    I'm not really bragging on this one, it's just the second I've attempted and thought I'd put it up. It's for a customer who chose the frame style and color. I'm not too keen on the frame profile (too deep) or the red mahogany color....but that's what he wanted. It's about 11 1/2 x 13 1/2.

          I like it hon-- I especialy like the white dot you put in the eye-makes it better to me.
          I don't see anything wrong with the frame either- You just have to understand some folks like dark ( uck) dark wood.

              I like your portrait Mike. I don't get many orders for portraits...probably because I don't do many of them. Sharon...I always put that little white reflection in eyes. Seems to put more life in the piece. A little advice on that though....If you're doing an intarsia or segmentation piece that will be judged for competition, the judges will withold points if it's painted. They want to see a tiny piece of white wood in there!!! Personally I prefer paint because if I place them wrong I can always scrape it off when it dries and re-do it. If you put a hole in the wrong place in one of those eyes that is made up of four or five tiny pieces of wood....Oh well....!!

                  Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                  Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry
