So I wasn't really sure where this should go but it is an image reproduction. Sooo this is where I shall put it. My husband did this from a photo of my daughter. This is the first photo he's ever done. He's dabbled with woodburning phrases and whatnot but never an actual photo. He keeps complaining about this and that in the reproduction and I keep telling him he did an awesome job but he wont believe me, so I told him I'd let craftsters decide. So without further ado.....

Because he doesnt want the actual photo of our daughter posted I blurred her face but you can see the detail in the rest of the pic.

I think it's beautiful.  Smiley Your husband should be very proud. Not everything always has to be reproduced exactly in order to get a wonderful creation!

Thank you all! I keep telling him it's amazing, but I guess as the artist you're always more critical of your own work.
craftster2 - What would you pay for an item like this. Its about a 4x6

He decided he might like to do personalized also. His friend can draw too, so he wouldnt just be limited to photographs. Right now he's working in my older daughter's photo. It was taken in the same spot as this one and he's almost finished another of his sister and her family. So what would something like this go for say on etsy or something?
