  • 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....!!

                  Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                  I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                  This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                  I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                  Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                  How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

                  I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

                  First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
