Pyrographic Signs From Adrift Art Studio

I have a bunch of jewelry made and hope to turn some of it tomorrow. That is what brought me to try doing something a little different for a change of pace. I did not want to make anything else in the jewelry line until after my next show.

That got me to drag out my favorite wood burning tool and go to work on a piece of wood I have been keeping my eye on for the past couple of weeks. Sometimes I like to just fire up the hot pen and go after it without a plan. That makes being creative and casting my emotions into a form so much fun. It does not always turn out the way I like but on this particular day I was very pleased with my finished piece of artwork.

It turned out to be a sign. I suppose it would look nice in a yard. That is where I like to put things that reflect my inner self. This one sure is showing some reflection and it was a lot of fun to make. Pyrographics is a good medium to mix with acrylic paint and for this sign I threw in a little bead work to augment the idea of "little things" in our life.
