  • 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.

        Nicely done. Customer is always right, though.

          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....!!

                  SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                  Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                  Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                  Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
