Hi everyone
Well it’s been awhile since I’ve done a new Intarsia piece (or any scrolling for that matter) but with the warmer weather here in Va. it’s time to get back in the shop and get creative. Here are a couple of pics of my newest creation to be. It will be titled “Caught in the Headlights” and will be my first night time scene. I’ve been wanting to do this for quite awhile.I will be combining parts of these three photos to depict a rather humorous setting that will include wildlife together in what would be considered an un-natural chance encounter.This piece will be set in a 20” x 24” walnut frame. I will be using lots of ebony, different shades of green poplar, lignum vitae, blue mahoe , ziricote, Peruvian walnut and who knows what else to create the dark backgrounds. I am drawing the pattern now and I can envision upwards of 300 to 400 pieces in this intarsia. Loads of fun for sure!!! Stay Tuned

Looking forward to seeing your project come to light (pun intended).

I’ve seen that lots of times with just a pair of green eyes to wonder about.
