  • My 2nd portrait

    This is my second attempt. It is a different style than the first and was more difficult to make the pattern. I tried a couple of different versions before I settled on this one. It works, but there are things I would like to do different but time would not allow it because I wanted to give it as a gift to my boss today.


    This is of my employer who I have been working for for about 17 years. He was a professional boxer during and just after WWII. He is now 85 years old and still works about 12 hours a day and still exercises 1 to 2 hours a day to keep his body and mind sharp.

    I'm sure that will be much appreciated, Bill. Nice work. What did you use for the backing board behind the picture?

          You've selected just the detail that's needed to tell the story - and that's not easy! Very well done .

            Ian, I chose a red velvet fabric for the backing.

            Thank you all for your complements. My boss has not opened it yet, he is going to take it home before it is opened so I won't know untill later on what his reaction is going to be.

              Good idea and nice job. It's too bad you won't see his reaction. I can't imagine working even 12 hours a week at the age of 85, if I make it that long.

                  Bill I think you did a "knockout" job on that, I really hope my second design will come out at that level. Good job buddy and keep them coming.

                      First off how thick is the board you cut?
                      When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                      that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                      for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                      I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                      Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                      Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

                      I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
