021_hummingbird

I have two great friends who take amazing photographs, especially of wildlife. My woodburning of a Chickadee is based on one of their photographs. I love making photos of flowers so it was a great treat when they asked me to make this piece of pyrography. Both the hibiscus and hummingbird are iconic to Trinidad …

Togo

232_togo

This wood burning represents, in a way, the end of the road for Cowboy Country TV. We were working on the seventh season and there were strong signs that the show wouldn’t be back (due to network restructuring, not popularity; broadcast TV can be weird that way). I’d already done some pyrography for promo items …

A little Wildlife, A Little Color

054_squirrel

Part of the charm and allure of Pyrography is the sepia quality it creates. But sometimes a little color helps punch up the composition, draw the eye in. These woodburnings represent some of my first uses of pigment in my pyrography. To see more of Chris Wulff’s art and design visit¬†uberdoodles.com. Share and Enjoy:

Bison and Bark

052_bison

Behold the ruler of the plains. History tells us of a time when herds of Bison covered the prairies like a blanket. Having met a few of these huge mammals up close I can’t help but think that would be a tad intimidating. There’s something powerful and almost noble about their stance so I decided …

Big Horn

034_bighorn

Pyrography on pine. 9 x 7 Driving through the Rocky Mountains it’s pretty easy to get a look at a Big Horn Sheep. I’ve mostly seen them in spring and early summer, licking the salt on the side of the road and looking a little mangy in the process of shedding their winter coat. For …

Bailey

A Commissioned woodburning in memory of Man’s Best Friend. If you’ve taken a look at my pyrography gallery you’ll know that I like to make pictures of animals.

Wolves

011_treslupus

I don’t believe my last name has anything to do with my fascination with wolves. They’re just mysterious, amazing and beautiful animals. Other than at a zoo, I’ve never been close enough to a real one to get a good look so I really on photo reference to know what’s where in order to make …

Polar Bear

033_polarBear

I don’t profess to be an expert on the subject, but I’m led to believe that Polar Bears are one the nastier species on the planet. Solitary predators who roam a bleak landscape in search of things to bite and eat. Yet when you watch Polar Bear Cubs you see curiosity and playfulness. For this …

Pyrography on basswood. 11 x 14 The first of two commissioned portraits of Irish Water Spaniels (the other is C.J. by the Seashore). I was able to hang out a bit with Sadie and Murphy prior to the pyrography which was a huge perk. Getting to know the personalities of animals is a great help …
