Unique Artistry!!

Well - late to class for Alphabe-Thursday with Miss Jenny - but I have a good excuse...the framing job for this wonderful piece of artwork was delayed due to waiting on some of the framing materials. Just picked it up this afternoon...

This is a belated birthday present for Mr. Outback.  One of his two tours in Vietnam was with an aviation group that called themselves "Blue Stars."  Maria at Personalized Sketches and Sentiments drew the unit's insignia and added a replica of Mr. Outback's Senior Army Aviator wings. 

She did a wonderful job - look closely - the drawing is composed of Mr. Outback's name...Maria's attention to detail and her artistic skill really shines! (Click on each image for an enlargement)

Framed in brushed gold, matted in dark blue and inner accent mat of gold

Mr. Outback is happy - and I managed to pull off something unexpected! 

Be sure to visit all the other "U" postings over at Miss Jenny's for this week's Alphabe-Thursday.

Oh! Pat, thank you for sharing John's piece on your blog & for your very kind words about the art I do. I loved doing these images in John's name and love how you double matted and framed it. I'm also happy that John is enjoying your gift :o) Please tell him again -Thank you for his military service!

Blessings & Aloha!
Thank you also for letting me know, so that I can post these photos in my facebook art page's "All about Customer's Art" album. I am off from work tomorrow, so will be back to visit some more then.
