Just a pic of each.

The first was sketched, woodburned and then stained Its Day of the Dead (dia de los muertos)  I had to use the flash so it's a little washed out



and the second is from a wood cut out I did a while back that I kept waiting to tell me what it was meant to become, and it finally did.  Handpainted aged and mounted to a mirror.  The flash images were too intense (with bright light coming out of the eyes and nose from reflection on the mirror so this one is a little dark Tongue



ETA:  The flash photo of the other is cool so adding it in



Opinions and such greatly appreciated Smiley

Those are awesome!  I absolutely adore the second one, especially the way it looks completely different with the light.  Great job.

IN love. I'd love to have the first one with a little hole cut in the middle for a light switch plate.
