This is a Judy Gale Roberts pattern that I made for my grandaughter for Christmas. I will be taking this one and some others to Judy’s open house next weekend in Tennessee. If your close you should come by, it sounds like an intarsia artists dream. This piece is made from walnut, poplar, canary wood, blood wood, wenge, lace wood, ebony, teak, mohogany, cherry and yellow heart. The only changes I made form the original pattern was the feet and eyes. I used 2 inch lace wood for the feet to give them a little more depth. The pattern called to make the eyes out of one piece, then wood burn and paint. I chose to make the eyes out of different woods. It was a challenge due they fact some of the pieces were very small. Hope yall like it and suggestions are always welcome.

Great job, but wouldn’t she look better with a smile? Pretty girls should always smile.

I always wanted to try intarsia, but after seeing your beautiful works, I’m not sure I want to try. I took a look at your workshop and saw how big this little girl is, as well as the many other projects you have completed. What a talent!

I have a specific large project in mind, and am in need of someone with artistic talents that can sketch out the design for me. Since I am a new member, I wonder if LJ has anyone out there that can draw or sketch coloring book style drawings.

I’d like to be able to do that, it looks great.

What kind of camera do you have?
