Wow! That got there fast! I only mailed it yesterday. I am so glad you like it. :grouphug: I am hoping it helps heal in some small way.
Working on these pieces is actually a little cathartic for me. I think about the loves that have passed and the love they gave, or give if they are still with us. This week it has been very helpful to me. So thank you chico. :grouphug: You have helped me more than you know.

What a beautiful gift!! 14+, that is amazing! The best gifts always come from the heart :lovestruck:

My father commissioned an artist to do an oil painting of Thorin for us. It was a Christmas gift several yrs ago. It hangs over one of the fireplaces :)

OMG 14+, I've just spent a long time looking at all the beautiful pieces of art you've so generously sent your friends. You truly are a very gifted artist, have you ever thought of supplementing your income by taking orders or advertising? I'm sure you could make a fortune to help with your many kitties!

Thanks everyone. Rocky was a special boy. He deserves a special memorial.

Thanks shannon. :o I have thought of that. In fact it 's been mentioned here often. I have told members all they have to do is pm me and we can talk. ;) The problems with me taking orders are my kitties and work. Well, the kitties aren't problems but you know what I mean. It does not leave me a lot of time to work on these pieces. Right now I do them at my leisure at night while watching TV. Some pieces can be done quite quickly. Some pieces take up to 50 hours to burn. If I was a tad more organized I could probably do one or two a week. Right now I'm lucky to do one every few weeks. :rolleyes:

Great great piece of art! I always loved the pics of Rocky sprawled out in the catnip too :laughing:

I didn't think it was his nip. I was trying to remember the exact spot where the picture was taken and thought I remembered the bird bath and Rocky's liking to lie under it. :cloud9:

.what I would like to know is....where does that woman find the time :o

I know, I am amazed too




you managed to capture his special look
She is an absolute genius, the one she did of my sweet Rose is a spitting image of her, especially the eyes. It hangs in my office where I can look at her all day and I am always amazed at how she captured the eyes.

Ha!! I have to get off Pets now and get to work or the next one won't be getting done for a long time!! :oThen I am taking some time to do a picture of owls for one of the gals at work for a belated wedding gift. She collects owls.

The eyes are the hardest part to do. I sometimes spend hours getting them just so. I keep hoping I did them right. It's nice to know I do occasionally. :thumbs up

Thanks TQ and Marko. Every time I do one of these and it's posted here I see things I would love to be able to change to make it better. But it's too late. The pics are out of my hands. I hope I don't ever hurt anyone's feeling by doing a picture for them. :fingerscr

What a wonderful gift. 14+, I never tire of seeing the beauty you create with that wood burning tool.

Chico, that is such an amazing image of Rocky. I know you will cherish that for so many years to come.
