A Bird for My Daughter

My daughter has quite a collection of bird houses but no bird. Recently I came upon a stack of old magazines and saw a line tracing of this pheasant. So I burned this one for her for Christmas. The first eagle was also a line tracing and burned it without detailing the feather. The second Bald Eagle has each feather detailed.

Nice work. My artistic talent ends with wood, I’m afraid. Kudos, friend.

Your daughter is one lucky person. Your burning is excellent and I like the addition of some colour. Well done!
