When I was grieving the initial loss of my Pop Pop, I decided to draw him. And not on paper as I normally would. Instead, I used a woodburning tool that my Dad found in our garage.
I hadn't seen my Pop Pop's smile since his passing and as I etched it into the wood, I could feel his presence. Seeing my finished project made me smile again too. My Pop was my biggest supporter. And like the portrait I made of him, his spirit is forever engrained in my heart.
There's something about the human quality of these portraits that brings the person (or animal!) to life. I thoroughly enjoy creating them and I would love to make one for you too!
Upon purchase, send me an image of your loved one and I'll woodburn a portrait for you! Contact me directly for more info!
