    First step to an awesome gate complete. Each bird, the frog, one of the dragonflies and most of the vegetation was drawn from pics of the actual specimen. Heron Gate.png

    78" x 126". It will be split vertically and cut from 4' x 8' sheets mounted to the gate frame.

    Thank you. It was a fun one for sure. Probably the "busiest" design I've done at this size.

    Thank you so much guys, I appreciate it.
    Concerning hinges I have no clue. All I did was the design, my client did the cut and the fence company did the install.

    Excellent work! Could I possibly ask you what you would charge for something like this?

    Hi cmykpro!
    I'm sorry about my long absence and your long wait on reply. Also, thank you for the compliment, much appreciated.

    This particular design took a lot of time as each animal/critter and some of the cat tails are drawn from hi-res pics, except for the dragonfly on the right. As such the cost to design this piece from scratch ran $200.00. Even though this method may add to the cost of a design I find that the unique results achieved are well worth it as originality is what sells in this business.

    Thank you very much Torchmate. My family deeply appreciates all of the thoughts, prayers and support received from so many in this community, I would like to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart.
    The outpouring of support has truly been astounding and through the combined efforts of many wonderful people we have remodeled a spare room and installed a shower in wet room fashion in order to accommodate all of his needs. Jon is now entering the physical therapy phase. Still a waiting game as far as his discharge but he's proven thus far to be very tough, hope to have him home in a few weeks. Hard to believe he's been hospitalized since the 16th of December.

    Once again, thank you all!!!

    Oh, concerning drawings. Unfortunately it's been a few months since I've done anything at all, my life as I knew it was put on hold rather suddenly and some things went unattended as others took priority. I hope now to be getting back to the artwork I so dearly love.
