I think I was using basswood. I was told it didn't have a lot of grain in it, but I sure ran into a lot of it!

I am enormously impressed, 14+, and I just can't thank you enough for giving me 15 hours of your life to create this beautiful portrait of the original Trio!

Aww hazel. You are welcome. It's something I enjoy doing when I am watching TV. There's always a project on the go.
And on that note............

Thanks rainbow, chico, aslan! As for advertising my work... thinking about it. Will have to give up something else to do that though and haven't quite figured out how to do that.

I am quite sure BM and aslan will come up with something great. I am not worried. Different mediums bring different end results.

hmmmmm i might have a business idea. Grace has been bugging me for awhile to open a booth with the bootleg movies(she either wants lots of money, or me in jail). We could get some photo's of your work and put them up, and get my sis to make up flyers advertising what you can do, prices, sizes....oh oh brainstorming now....My sis who owned Desi creates web pages. can always shmooze her into making you one.

I have to agree with Aslan. I really don't think mine will even come close. I started mine but scraped it. I will try again once I am more focused as Aslan is trying very hard to distract me. Bad Aslan...bad, bad.

Grace wants to visit you in jail?!!!!! Holy crow!!
My son in law actually is an IT guy. He has told me before he would set something up for me if I decide to do something. That was for another project but we haven't got that far on it yet. I need another 10 hours in a day!!
Thanks for the ideas. I am sure we can come up with something.

I guess I forgot to add one more thing on my list of things I do....... and it's important. Pets.ca

Beautiful 14+! I think you chose the most perfect photo to work with too .

However distracting it may be, I think above your desk is just the right place for it, Hazel .

Thanks growler and diandpat! Giving is definitely better than getting in my eyes. Unless it's a gift from hubby.

Awww thanks guys.
I am storming my brain as to how/what/costs/etc for making money on this. The biggest issues are the cost of the wood, charging for different sizes, detail, etc. Lots to think about. You'd think having Marketing as my degree I would be able to figure it out faster.

There are so many people who would love something like this. I've seen these kind of plaques sell for a lot of money. You could set yourself up with a little company and call it the Catty Inc. LOL. All the money you make from selling these you can use for the kitties out in the cattery.

I think that's an excellent idea, 14+! I'm sure you'd be able to find customers!!! I can think of eight portraits I want done, for example. Work up a price list...
