"Donovan" - a small relief carving
I found a portrait carving of
my grandson aalong with an award he won in Elementary school, while going through some old papers.
I have no idea how they got there.
I wondered if I could turn these into a keepsake that he might appreciate. I decided to paint the relief carving and mount it in a small frame with the award. I find the colour gives a better likeness than the bare wood.
The picture shows the piece after painting but before sealing with a clear finish.
I'll post a final picture when I get it finished.Click here to see more portrait figurines.
