        Kathy, that is an absolutely magnificent piece of art. It would be extremely difficult for me to give it up had I carved it and I usually lose interest in a piece once it is finished.

        The way you placed the deer on the wood makes it look like hills and mountains in the background. Great work!

              Hi Mel, Thank you, my client will be coming over tomorrow morning to look at it. I'm a little anxious as I never know just how to charge for my woodcarvings. Everyone is looking for a bargain! LOL
              Pals,

                Update:
                Thumbs Up My client picked up the deer day before yesterday (Tuesday) and was thrilled. I got a call from his wife who was thrilled with her Birthday present and wants more. They are redesigning their home interior and wants all rustic furnishings and art work.
                Thanks again, everyone for your compliments on this piece.

                      Re: Deer

                      Very nice, Kathy. I'm curious, was it difficult to burn on a piece of drift wood?

                        Hello Pol, thank you for your compliment very much appreciated.
                        Yes and No, it really depends on if there are furrows running across the direction you need to burn that will grab and hold your woodburning pencil. This particular piece was pretty smooth without much in the way of furrowing and pitting to get in the way of my lines.
                        Hope this helps,
                        Kathy

                              Hi Kathy,

                              I'm so glad Pol resurrected this thread. I don't usually go back through old postings and now I'm wondering about what I'm missing.

                              I'm very impressed with this piece. Your use of the wood is perfect and indeed breathes new life into it. Buffing down to the unweathed wood below the gray, weathered surface gives the deer such a vibrant color. Great work.

                                Hi Ron T, thank you, what a nice compliment very much appreciated. I knew if the wood was grayed on top then the underwood would be a good contrast for the deer. The golden under wood in contrast to the grayed outer wood just mocked the deer color.
                                Thanks again,
                                Kathy
