Thought I had better do one final submission for 2016 with a variety of works I been requested for as presents.

Pic 1 Head of a Rottweiler, the background has Liechtenberg burn patterns over a combination of acrylic paints finished with a coat of polyurethane. This was commissioned as a Christmas present and paid well.
Pic 2 A British Bull Dog, another commission which brought some dollars in.
Pic 3 Fire Dryads with Fractal burning as a background.
Pic 4 Front side of a stand, more fractal burning dabbed with paint for blossom and Pic 5 is the reverse side, that white thing is a moon?
Pic 6 Had a late order for shells and this was a rush job, worked out Ok and was paid.

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Bob, I agree with Pete…..Very impressive!!!!! I am amazed at the detail. Every image is so clear and precise. You are an Artist…The Fractal burning in the background looks great. Also the pink blooms are very nice. Do they represent Cherry Blossom? Stunning Project Bob!!!!!!! Then to top it all off… present to us the Shells, which could have been a stand alone project by itself.
Fantastic Project!!!!!!!! Happy New Year and Many Projects.
