Pyrography

I recently found out that the art of wood burning is called pyrography. I also recently tried my hand at a project larger than jewelry components. My parents redid their back porch, and my Dad had this paddle he wanted a design on. It my my anniversary gift to them. I choose a lovely "up north" scene and I am very pleased with how it turned out. It was especially interesting to make sure the reflection of the water was just right. They really loved it too!

That looks fantastic! It's great to see your work on a larger "canvas" so it can really be appreciated.
