I wanted to burn something special for my son-in-law for his upcoming birthday. He and my daughter have been married for several years now, and while I burned a customized cutting board for him a few years ago, featuring his favorite football team; The Philadelphia Eagles, I have never burned his portrait. So, I decided this might be a nice gift for him.
I went through his Facebook profile photos to find a photo I knew he liked and which also inspired my creativity. I found this one, which I really loved!
The reflections in the sunglasses made this image extra fun to burn! And he is wearing his professional chef jacket, which I thought was a nice touch.
I had a great time burning this portrait and he loved it so much, he hired me to burn a family portrait of himself and his siblings from a photo taken during a recent trip they made to see his family on the east coast. I’ll be posting that project next!
