This is my 4th wood burning project that I have just completed. Using a photograph I transferred the image onto a piece of basswood 15-in. x 25-in. What inspired me to choose this particular image was the complexity of the details and the beauty it shows of the past. I have always loved the old pictures of the days gone by it sure was a pleasure to burn. I added some color to this using a water color pencil which works really well.

This burning has been accepted to be in the next issue of Pyrography Magazine and I am really excited…

Thank you Dennis for your all your advice while burning and taking these photos you are a great inspiration to me. I also want to thank Dennis’ son Eric for applying the finish.

Thank you for looking!

Well done Patti.
The burning reminds me of an old sepia toned photo and the bit of colour pops it nicely.
Keep them coming
