There's no need to ask for special treatment Karen, your work is superb. You may have only been do wood burning for 1 1/2 years but your artistic talent was born into you. What I'm saying is that anyone can learn to burn wood, but if the artistic talent is not inherent in ones make up, then results like yours will never be achieved.

Karen, that is true artistry. I can't wait to see more of your work. That horse looks like it's breathing!

I've cut it twice and it's still too short! But only at one end.

That's beautiful work, Karen. What tool do you use for the burning? Do you make your own "pictures" or is that something that is available as a pattern? Do you sell them?

I paint watercolours, but have never tried wood burning.

Wow! Thank ALL of you for your kind replies.

I had many pieces, many were sold this past week on July 3rd and 4th at a local Bull Riding event. I have only a few pieces left.

I work maybe two hours start to finish on each one, my average price is $20.00. Any higher price, they won't sell. Live and learn!

I will be posting my work here daily.
