Turning Photographs into Wood Art

Blog entry by BonnieBartay posted 03-18-2013 01:06 PM 6075 reads 0 times favorited 14 comments Add to Favorites Watch

Some of my favorite projects to do is turning photographs into wood art. Each piece is unique and has special characteristics that mean something special to the customer. Taking something that a customer loves and turning it into artwork preserves that thing along with the memories that surround it. Some of the most common request that I get for these types of custom projects are vehicles, pets, homes, etc.

I enjoy creating these because each one is custom and there is not another like it. I get to create a plan and pattern that develops into something that no one else has done before.

Of course there is something to be said about using set patterns created by accomplished pattern makers such as Judy Gale Roberts and Kathy Wise, but it is a lot of fun making up your own as you go.

Sometimes making these wood art projects from photographs do not go quite as planned and there is often redesigning and additional planning needed, but this is where it gets interesting and fun.

If you are interested in ordering a custom piece from a photograph, simply use the “Contact Us” tab on our homepage http://www.cmobleydesigns.com to send us a message. All that is needed is a photograph and approximate dimensions and we will do the rest.
