Vincent Price by numbthumbs Vincent Price by numbthumbs
Hello everyone, This is my latest work of art. It is Pyrography (burning of wood to create art) It is a tribute to the late Vincent Price. It took approximately 20 hours, measures 11" x 14" and was created on Basswood. I had a great time creating it and hope you all enjoy it. Thank you for looking and as always, Crits and comments are more than welcome.

I've been a fan of Vincent since I was little. Have watched some doco's of him and his huge body of work and his love of art. He started an Art Museum at his University I think and it's still going today as well has an  ongoing grants for artists to help them to create more works.

Thank you very much for your comment. I am very happy that you like it. I'm also glad that so many people still know who he was. I try to explain this to my art students and I get that blank deer in head lights look. LOL

Heyyyy, Toby, I'm glad you like it. It took a week worth of late nights but I think I'm happy with the outcome. Thank you again for the comment and the wood burner. Now if I could get some sleep and stop walking around like a damn zombie, that would be great. LOL. :)

Dood... I am so jealous of your "mad shading skillz" right now. And that detail with the wrinkles and eyes and hair and... well, just everything.
