This is a Pyrography done on Red Cedar
The lighthouse is the Ponce De Leon with my rendition of added scenery, and Dolphins added in the foreground.
It measures 19” tall, and 11” wide.

That’s incredible. It looks like an old master’s painting.

Thanks to all of you for the nice comments, this one actually has 2 small splits up through the water, and I smeared some wood glue over the splits to make sure it wouldn’t split more. That smear burned lighter, but it just happened to be in the right spot for a reflection :) I did add a little color to some of the reflection, but not all of it. The color is thinned acrylic paint, it works well, and you can always dab it off if its too much. I find it soaks in quite a bit, so end up painting several times.
