Custom wood cutout ornaments are a labor of love.  Before the painting begins, there are several steps involved to create a one of kind keepsake.

First the sketch is made:

Then the sketch is scanned, printed &  hand colored with color pencils.  This drawing is scanned and emailed to the client for approval:
