My Wrendition of a Carolina Wren: The Creative Process

wren-silhouette333A couple of months ago I met a lady who fearlessly decided to catapult me into the 21st century and onto the Internet via the website you see before you.

After posting a couple of simple things — for example, a story about my first time woodburning a tiger — she then suggested it might be interesting to show how I arrive at a new artistic creation.

Since I’m presently designing a logo for her and trying to incorporate it into her business of making Native American Style flutes I decided to combine some of my current goals and document my efforts in her behalf as an example of the creative process.       Read more …

Orchid W. Davis: My first woodburned tiger

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I remember woodburning this Tiger because it was against my will.

I was in Blue Ridge, GA  teaching a woodburning class. One of my students walked into the room and became enthusiastic about burning a tiger.  He had seen some of my reference photos.

I didn’t have a tiger pattern at the time and told him to go ahead and start from the photo.

That night I stayed up til two in the morning burning my version of the tiger you see in this post.

Was I tired the next day!

But the student appreciated my efforts and his final tiger piece was one of the best pieces of wood burning created in that class.
