Homestead Art: Ode To Lord B

I just had to share this with you. My husband is a very talented guy. Besides the amazing things he's done with our various house projects (among other things), he's an pyrographic artist. This is his latest ....

It's a poem, "Ode To Lord B," inspired by our Barred Holland rooster. It's woodburned on a 10 by 15 inch birch panel.

Hey, that's my rooster...I love it!

I can't believe how calm it is in a hen house with only one rooster, I've never had just one...ahhhhh!

Very talented man ya got there, Leigh. Is this print on parchment or fabric?

Leigh said...

Debbie and Sarah, thanks!

Sharon, I know what you mean about only one rooster, LOL. Really makes a difference. We now have two new roosters somewhere in the neighborhood, so crowing wars are becoming quite common. :o

Tami, oh! I realized I didn't tell how it was done! I'm glad you said something. Actually it's woodburned onto a 10 by 15 inch birch panel.

All hail Lord B, and was there a Lord A?

Carolyn Renee said...

That is beautiful!

Mama Pea said...

A piece of art to treasure always!

Susan said...

Wow! He IS talented!! How long did that take - start to finish?

Jane said...

Very nice.

The Weekend Homesteader said...

That is wonderful! I'm sure you are proud.

Stephanie said...

That is beautiful work Leigh!:) You are both so talented.

Madness, Trouble and Squish said...

That is so cool. We still have a copy of "Ode to Rascal" stuck on our fridge.

Leigh said...

Risa, he's something. Actually the "B" is the first letter of his breed, Barred Holland. I call him Lord Barred Holland, Dan shortened it to Lord B. We're not very creative with our animal names around here. :)

Carolyn Renee & Mama Pea, thanks!

Susan, I'm not really sure. He's worked on it off and on over the past several months, so it's hard to remember how many straight hours it would have been. He probably could have done it all in an afternoon, start to finish.

Jane, Candace & Stephanie, thans!

MT&S, LOL. "Ode to Rascal" is probably the best one done so far.

the poem is nice - but Lord B is much nicer:)) so much detail, amazing, it looks nearly like a black and white (ok, more sepia:)) photo!! cool - did you show it to the source of the inspiraton?:))

bspinner said...

EXCELLENT!!!!!

BrokenRoadFarm said...

What a beautiful piece! I love the detail on Lord B...

luckybunny said...

It's beautiful!

Leigh said...

Bettina, it looks pretty much like him too. The source of inspiration is only interested in things edible and would probably peck at "his" stripes if given the chance!

Barb, BRF, & Donna, thanks!
