    It came out beautiful Kathy. The colors are very vibrant and I think appropriate considering the subject.

    Bob, thank you I did push the color a bit as compared to the Dover color. I have this thing about color I seem to want to portray it more viberant.
    I think there are times that adding color to a woodburning is nice. Then there are other times I like the warm sepia tones. Guess it depends on the subject.

    Mel, well after the buffalo this one was fast forsure. Now I can get back to relief carving.

    Thanks guys,
    Kathy

    Beeee-utiful job! Love the way the colour jumps out at ya and the effect the woodgrain has.....I guess I've been admiring woodburnings in just B/W (?) or grayscale (?) so long, I plumb forgot about colour.

    Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Well, didn't think I'd finish this today but I did. I actually scanned the work about half-way though--so I could share that stage with you.
    Well, best layed plans--Head Bange somehow my scanned image didn't save to it's file. Sooo all I have is the beginning and finish.

    Thanks everyone for looking and commenting.

    Hi Kathy, ah yes, we have actually lived all over the country during our many years working for the government. I lived in Albuquerque for over 4 years and I left my heart in New Mexico and while we have visited Arizona, I'm still stuck on NM. One of these days in the not too distant future we'll be back there permanently!

    Nedra, I do remember you mentioning living in New Mexico at one time. I didn't realize Washington wasn't a permanent home. We thought about settling in New Mexico but Arizona won our hearts.

    Bob, thank you colored pencils are very versatile and are fun to work with.

    Hi Kathy, actually we just live here, it's not home. It's just a temporary stopping place on our way back to New MexicoMs Smile So, it's really not my state bird and while we have goldfinch outside our window every day feeding I haven't burned any. I do adore watching them though, they are so cute.

    I look forward to seeing the progress of your burning. I don't use color very often but it's always nice to see how people incorporate color into their burnings.

    I do remember that pattern in the Dover book. Nice pattern. Rhoddy's are definately the state flower. They are EVERYWHERE!!!

    Kenny, thank you I sure hope so.

    Brian, thank you it's nice to be able to add some color to a woodburning sometimes.

    Gilly, thank you it is hard to part with things you make but if I didn't we'd have to rent a warehouse. LOL

    Dave, thank you too.

    Dylan, thank you

    Nedra, LOL I forgot you lived in Washington State. You probably have burned your own state bird and flower beautifully.
    Thank you for your nice compliment.

    I will add an update soon.
