In Memory of John - Woodburning by brandojones In Memory of John - Woodburning by brandojones
This was my gift to the wife and family of John, :iconforestdwellerhouses:. I barely knew him and never met him in person, but he was a great person and artist so I volunteered to do a woodburning of him in his memory. Check out his woodworking here: ForestDwellerHouses 
Handmade by me. 10.5 inches by 13 inches, Basswood.

I barely knew John, too. He'd always say nice things about my work. And I found out today that he had passed away. This is truly a beautiful and amazing piece of art. John would have admired it as well.

I'm surprised nobody let his only biological son know of his passing. I know his son tried to connect with him a while back. Truly sad. Sounds like there were a lot that loved his work & cared for him. I'm sure his son would appreciate any additional information. Blessings.

Hiya.. I was just wondering if you'd mind if I put a thumbnail of this beautiful piece, and a link to it on Forest's page? I know that his friends and watchers would love to see it.

My pleasure :D I can only do it in a comment. Maybe if Carolyn logs in she might click on the thumbnail and add it to Favourites so that it will stay on the front of the page and won't disappear of the page as comments come in.

I am really at a loss for words such moments, when we lose someone the whole world seems to stop. At least John has good friends, who make it a tiiiiny bit easier for his family!
