Default 2 new portraits for Christmas

Here are 2 portraits I've finished up to give as presants. I stack cut the one of my wife and my daughter so I could give them to more than one person. I found the perfect document frame at Wally World that holds them just right without having to cut off the wood. It took me about 5-8 hours each to make that pattern and was wonduring if that is about the norm or does it get faster the more you do.

Hate wind. We are having a high wind warning here today and I have had to chase me trash can and rack leaves away from my wall/driveway so they would blow on down the yards. I have no trees in my yard but more leaves than anyone around me.

Two very nice cuttings and patterns! And yes, you will get faster as you do more patterns but sometimes it just takes time to get it right and depends on the picture. Nice work....thanks for showing us.

Nice job on the patterns and the cuttings.

It takes as long as it takes to do it right, less time if you do it wrong.
Good job!
