Mel…it turned out awsome! I went to your website to read more about it. Love the way you caught the mother’s different expression in each eye differently. The texture of her blouse done in pointillism is very well done, as is all your shading. I’m sure your wife is very proud of this piece. “Keep burning and learning”...hugs..Dannie

Very nice work… I also looked at your web page. Also nicely done. And I really liked your how to articles. Wood burning is one of those things I have always wanted to try. Thanks for sharing.

Mel, I am very familiar with that picture,the depression era is a time of great history for the everyday man and woman Americans across the country proved to others and themselves that they could survive despite the odds. I great job on recreating the image.
