Guest Book

Welcome to our Guestbook. I want to thank you for visiting and invite you to take a few moments to browse these notes and to add a touch of yourself to this space. Art is communication between people and you are as much a part of this interaction as I, and I look forward very much to your thoughts.

To avoid the perennial challenge of spamming we are reviewing our entries to this page before posting. You may use the link below to share your thoughts, and I will add your words to this page as soon as I can. Thanks so much for your contribution to the site!

Thank you for taking on the weekend class at the John C. Campbell Folk School last week. With 14 students in class I know as an educator myself how difficult it was to provide enough quality time to each of us as beginning artists. The personal attention that you were able to give was very much specific which I appreciated. While none of us produced museum quality work, all of us produced a very fine piece of art for display in our homes.The samples of your work provided a realistic glimpse into what potential pyrography has even for us beginners to express our own love for art. And all of us can talk much more expertly and eloquently about pyrography. Thanks again and I hope you continue to consider starting your own pyrography "school" in Virginia.

Dear David,
Hello. You are different and special; a real human! I feel so lucky to have reached your unique website where art, science & human feelings coexist. I have been at your site for long at a stretch, finding it an amazing and enlightening site indeed. Extremely organized & very informative. I am also grateful for landing me onto my final destination, pyrography, as I have been a vagabond all my life lost in a maddening wilderness of science, technology & arts. I still don't have proper tools as they are not available here but you motivated me so much that in couple of sleepless nights I made my own contraption and started off on to my final journey. As I am retired and have to survive on a meager pension, while doing some charity work teaching poor kids, it will take some months of saving before I can order the proper wood burning kit. I have also traveled through science to several other media to art; started with a welding torch, photography, cinematography, collage, sun pyrography, film, television, jewelry, ceramics, sketching portraits, computer graphics, and something I will call "paintography." But I have felt still thirsty and unsettled wanting something more.. Your statement just opened a new horizon for me with pyrography, a perfect merger of art and science and technology...the reference to Einstein's statement is my torch also! God bless!

Hi David!
I discovered pyrography about 3 years ago and have fallen in love with the art form! I’ve become pretty familiar with some of the other names out there but hadn’t heard of you until now - just wanted to say I love your work! Bookmarked your page & looking forward to seeing your new work. :)

We met at the crafts show this past weekend in Pennsylvania. I wanted to send you a message to say thank you for sharing your talent, and I hope to see you back there next year. Also, please continue to think about putting your original works into book form, please. You could add prints of your art and mix them in with the poetry. Best wishes with your future, and I will continue to visit your site for new material.

Hi David.
I met you yesterday at the SugarLoaf Craft festival at Timonium, MD. When I was walking up to your booth I thought you were a photographer and was wondering about what filters, etc. you used because of the beautiful color. Upon getting closer and seeing the grain I was stunned. I am a photographer and my father was a carpenter so I have always loved real hands-on work in wood. To see your depth and with your explanation of how you use woods for the better qualities to go with different types of images was wonderful. All I can say is bravo! It was wonderful to meet you and see your work. All the best.

Dear David
I am speechless in your gallery.. I am a painter, or was.. I am a disabled vet who had a very bad dream and busted my head I am told and now am in a wheel chair. Anyway I got into woodburning a few months ago and it's people like you who inspired me to do so. I can understand where you are coming from in your burnings. I sit and stare at your work and every stroke has meaning, and I want my burnings to be the same, to have such feeling.. I think that anytime a person looks at a painting or burning, they should feel it, like a falcon.. they should feel the rush of a take, the power in its bill, the sharpness in its eye.. if the artist doesn't instill this then he's painted a flat picture. Thank you for allowing me to view your galley.

Hi David,
First of all I recently took up woodburning as a hobby, have fallen in love with it and I have been trying to learn more techniques. I came across your website and I was BLOWN AWAY by these amazing pieces. I literally laughed with delight when I saw them...the colors and feel of them stilled me and made me just in awe. I wanted to know how you apply the dyes to the wood? YOU HAVE INSPIRED ME

It is so hard for me to believe how talented people are! Your work is so beautiful.. and the life you add in! I am disabled and trying to learn something new. I wish I could see you work. I am in a little city where I can't even find books on the subject and many people just don't want to help. But I will keep watching your work. How did you get started?

David, I am overcome with emotion - your work is stunning and moving, beyond words - a true gift from God. When I knew you, some 39 yrs ago - were you into this? I know you learned this after I left Israel - how I wish I could view this in person - wow!!! I'm touched by the emotion behind your work - a surge of emotions.. Our only hope is to make the world a better, kinder place, one child, teen, man, woman at a time. Your pieces leave me feeling hope - it doesn't get any better than that. Thank you so much! - love, Joanna

Hello David,
I met you at the Summer Peacebuilding Institute at EMU last week. Your humble nature revealed very little of your talents as an artist. I had a chance to visit your website and I cannot express my admiration in words! You are a wonderful artist. Your work will remain a great inspiration for me. Thank you for sharing it with the world. I hope our paths will cross again.

Cleveland, Ohio - June 9, 2008
Dear David, as a hobby woodburner myself, I can say you're one of the best artists in this special craft. And you are also a freedomfighter and a good person. For me living in Europe (Holland) you are, as we have had the chance sometimes to talk and correspond, a bridge to understand America. It's hard to get a non-biased opinion these days. But about your work: One of your best pieces is that small street in Jerusalem. I guess that's the Via Dolorosa. Second best are those birches. Especially the fine autumn colours you've added. After all these years I decided to purchase one, maybe both, above.

As I'm typing this, the 44th president in your country won with a landslide, four decades after "I HAVE A DREAM".. This man is a promise, but not a prodigy, and not the Messiah. I don't want to use this guestbook as a political bulletin board, but at this historic moment I just want to say Obama is just a changing of the guard, a man who holds respect for other-minded people. McCain would have been a good president too. America's future now may lie in sustainable energy technology after the digital revolution. This could be an opportunity that creates jobs and a whole new 'New Deal'! Maybe there can come access to universal health care and basic needs for all world citizens.. I hope the wounds of 9/11 will heal and war will come to end! Because he is proof of the American dream and the sum of different blood and cultures, and he understands the culture of the largest Muslim country Indonesia so he can be a bridge-builder instead of playing policeman of the world. Congratulations. But don't be over-optimistic, because he is just a man.

David, I'll will be back to you about that purchase.

Hi David, my husband and I moved to Lexington, VA in 1984. He was the district ranger on the Pedlar Ranger District on the George Washington National Forest. Soon after we moved we attended a craft show that included your beautiful work. We purchased "Entreat Me". It was done on the wood with a beach background with sea oats and a couple. Ruth 1:16-17 is engraved in our wedding bands so the verses mean alot to us. When we saw them burned on this wood with the couple we knew we had to have it. I guess we were lucky to be in on the very beginning of your career. We just celebrated our 40th anniversary. Just wanted you to know we still treasure your work and many people have enjoyed it as well while visiting in our home. We now live in Johnson City, TN and I've seen you one time since at the Virginia Highlands Festival in Abingdon. You have been blessed with an incredible talent and we have been blessed by the joy it has brought to us and others. Thank you!

Dear David,
I'm a prayer minister at the Presbyterian church in San Diego. One of our weekly ministries involves a time of quiet prayer and waiting on the Lord, Scripture is read and quiet worship music is played. I sometimes include inspirational poetry or short writings in the readings. I came across your words “Take kindly the gift – your life in time... “ and I would like to ask your permission to use it in our service. Thank you for your beautiful website, your beautiful artwork and writings, and the inspiration and love you share with the world through it. I know many will be blessed by your message. May God’s blessings always be upon you...

San Diego, California - April 20, 2008
I'm an artist in the High Desert above Palm Springs, and have burned landscapes and portraits on paper, wood, and leather over the years.. the "softer side" of the desert. I ran across your work a couple years ago and was enthralled! Today on the net I stumbled onto your site again.. Just wanted to let you know your art has really hit home for me and inspired me to return again to my burning. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

Hi David, I see you are for social justice and peace and believe in the goodness of humankind. We need activists like you who will speak out.. for United Nations and human rights in Israel and Palestine and for peace. I wish you "fol lok en seine" - Frisian for "much luck and health".

Hi David, Seeing your work again I am inspired to try some of your approaches with color in my pyrography as well. Your landscapes are fantastic and your portraits also, so alive!.. As we are celebrating the 400th birthday of Rembrandt here in Holland just now, I must say it seems to me your works have that same touch of Rembrandtesque wonder. I really like your art. Keep up the good work!

Hi David, I met you at the Montpelier Wine Festival when I was vacationing in Virginia and found myself very drawn to your work. I just wanted to say how much your art touched my heart and soul. I am particularly drawn to After the Storm, Summer Breeze, and Mountain Dusk and really like your Family of Children too because I have been a pediatric nurse for 40 years. It would be a great addition on my unit at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis! After the Storm is especially meaningful to me because I was diagnosed with cancer in Sept 2000, went through chemo, radiation, and a clinical trial with the drug Herceptin for a year.. As I look back at that journey and all that it has taught me, I have to say that I am very grateful for the experience. I wouldn't ask for it but since I was given it, I learned what it meant to have peace in the midst of a storm, and God has blessed me in unbelievable ways! I must say that it was the power of prayer and the peace that only God can give that carried me through that time. This morning my mind went to that picture and the words of Jeremiah 29:11-12 so I would like to order that beautiful combination if I may. I am drawn to those other pieces as well because I love nature and see and feel God everywhere in the beauty of His creation. Being from Minnesota (land of 10,000 lakes!) I love the water and hearing the waves along the shore, love sunsets and those mountains in Virginia were beautiful.. Mountain Dusk reminds me of my time there. I am also drawn to your writing, as well as the Prayer of St Francis and the words of Mother Teresa. You have a very sensitive spirit and I want to thank you for your wonderful creations. I certainly see the hand of God, the beauty of our Creator's art, and the love of God for ALL his children in your art. Blessings to you,

Your images, whether portraits or landscapes, all speak volumes.. In reading these notes, it is clear you have touched the heart of your viewers.. and through your eyes they see real beauty in the world.. may God bless you.

I was a sailor in Norfolk when I saw your work for the first time at a Greek Festival. Walking through the area I saw your "Indian Girl", stopped and spent the next 20 minutes in a trance, I'd never seen anything like it!.. At the time I was very low on money and couldn't afford to purchase her. I went home and a couple of hours later my friends who were with me came to my door with "Indian Girl", and she is now hanging above my diningroom table. Every time I look at her I am amazed at your talent and reminded what real friends can do. I will be buying more of your art, you are blessed with a great talent. God bless.

Roger, I want to thank you for your note. I remember you from that day, and was touched by your words.. You spoke of being part Cherokee and of what you saw in her - the love and pain, courage and despair, a host of opposing emotions that validated what I had hoped to convey in her - of the Cherokee Trail of Tears. I have spoken often of your words that day to others who have been "taken with her". Thank you for writing. - David
Yesterday I bought one of your beautiful pictures with a beautiful poem by you. And I have to confess that as beautiful as the picture is, I bought it for the poem. I thought it would be a perfect present for my dear husband. I was reading the poem again now, thinking how remarkable it is that you had written those words, chosen to put them in that picture, and that I randomly and unexpectedly happened to go to that show yesterday. When I saw those words I cried because they reflect so much my husband's and my relationship. You must have a beautiful relationship with someone too to have written those words. I am happy for you because I know how wonderful that kind of relationship is, ..and how unusual it seems to be.Thank you for those words, a message from God? to me.

I just bought "Whisper in the Aspens" and "Sugar Maples in Red" and love them both! I was also drawn by "Magenta Morning".. and I may just have to get it soon too.. You do beautiful work and I know I will get many many hours of enjoyment from your art. I'll be in touch with you, may stop by next time I'm in the area. Your work is beautiful and I look forward to adding more to my collection! Take care,

Hello David, I keep revisiting your site for inspiration. You truly are an amazing artist. Our website features the work of some amazingly talented pyrographers too and I consider myself blessed to know those folks, some of the nicest people you could want to know. It seems this artform draws some genuinely kind-hearted persons to it. Perhaps some of your visitors would like to join our happy community of pyrographers as well.. The URL is http://www.thepyrographer.com.

I just noticed my mother's posting in your guestbook as well (Jeanne McIntyre), she's the main reason I got interested in this, I got her a woodburning kit for Christmas a few years back as a gag.. Never thought it'd turn into such an obsession..:) Warmest Regards,

I just want to tell you that your pictures gave me a strong peace in my heart. I lost my husband in January and I and my children are longing for him. I felt that peace before I read your life story, so I think you must have special love which comes through your art. Have a very beautiful springtime and love in your life, and God´s blessing in everything you do. ..And if some day you come to Finland, you're welcome!.. love, Marja-Leena & children

I saw your work last Saturday the same day I was to have my cat of 13 years put to sleep. I was very sad that day.. it was the most difficult thing I have had to do in my life! I have been looking, for years, for something nice to put on my walls. I took one look at your work and was immediately drawn in.. "Mountain Tree" would not let me go until I had decided to bring it home, and then I kept seeing more I had to have.. That day, one of my most difficult, your work brought a smile to my face..and having your beautiful works in my house helps take away the emptiness.

Your work has been a great inspiration to me, and I would like to tell you why.. I used to follow my grandfather out to his garage when I was about seven or eight and be under foot. So, he sat me up on a stool at his work bench with a piece of scrap plywood and his old soldering iron. He showed me how to draw with it and that is how I started woodburning. When I got older I found a real woodburning tool and was in a gallery in my early twenties. But, since a car accident I had at sixteen, I have had 39 surgeries over the last 26 years. I have finally had to give up working altogether, and am now on total disability. But I am finally getting back into some of my hobbies again, thank goodness! I just love your work! and as I look at it I realize how wonderful it is to be able to express such inspiration from inside in this way... You have beautiful depth, and your art is so dynamic. I want to thank you for the gift of inspiration you have given me, and wish you the best wherever your path may lead!

Tonight, for the first time, I visited your website. I've recently become interested in woodburning, and had no idea that it could be so beautiful and so profound. I've always considered myself rich - not rich in a monetary way - but rather due to my Children, Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren. However, tonight was one of the few times I've wished I was indeed wealthy in other ways. If I were, I would be proud to hang many of your breathtaking works in my home.

David--your work is incredible! I love your images of people and cultures. I want to get one of those for my counseling office, as I see kids and adults there from many different cultures. I also really like your "Mother Love" picture and the verses you chose for it that use feminine imagery for God. And, your poetry is beautiful...especially "the Gift". You are gifted--God bless you in your work!

I have been burning for nearly ten years now and I have NEVER seen what was truely possible until I have seen your work. You have given me a whole new level to try and reach. I would give anything to just watch you work for 30 minutes. Please keep up the wonderful work. I know I will be back to visit many more times. Thanks,

David, Thank you so much! Let me say that your work is breathtaking! I, along with a zillion other people I guess, saw your work on the Carol Duvall show which I watch faithfully. She always has beautiful, innovative artists on but every now and then magic happens and something exquisite appears. Your work fits in that category and I hope to purchase more in the future. Thanks again!

David, the detail, coloring and shading that you achieve are absolutely remarkable, and to think of it being done in woodburning makes it even more amazing. I so admire your work. I really do not know how artists like you can part with such masterpieces, but I am glad you are willing to share them with the rest of us. I hope to meet you some day and shake your hand. You are incredible.

David, I've just had the pleasure of seeing your work again. As you may know, you have been the topic of the Uniting Pyrographers E-Group. You have truly inspired many of us to go to the "next level". Thank you for all that you have done! By showing your work to such a large audience, you have planted a big seed of credibility for the medium in the world of Fine Art. Best wishes for your continued success, and thank you for sharing your talents.

Your works are almost unbelievable, I just shook my head in awe that you could make something so beautiful from burning wood. Your Iris, St.Francis, and Mother Teresa works touch a special part of my heart as my brother who had many, many of your similarities passed away a few years ago, and just seeing your works brought back all kinds of feelings. Keep up your totally awesome work. I know my family will cherish the pieces I have ordered. mary ellen

I'm sure you'd rather hear from collectors, and if I had the wherewithal I'd certainly be one, but I'm nevertheless moved to say that your work is an inspiration. My wife tapes the Carol Duvall Show, and I normally watch with half an interest, but your segment hit me hard. I've monkeyed around with drawing and painting all my life without having the confidence to give it a serious try, and two of the things I admire the most are good drawing and innovation. Your pyrography technique is a superior example of both, and I haven't stopped thinking about it since I saw the segment. Many thanks.

I am currently pursuing a degree in fine art and had hit a creative wall, until today. I caught your piece on the Carol Duvall show and was awe struck! Viewing your work has sparked that creative flame within and I am crazy with anticipation to get started again. You've truly re-inspired me!

I have to say you are the most talented artist! What you have done has opened my eyes to the amazing possibilities for this type of art, and has given me the yearning to learn more and to express my feelings in such a beautiful way! Hopefully one day I will get to see some of your work right in front of me. I think having a piece of YOUR art would inspire me to take things to a whole other level. I am quite serious when I say you are an inspiration and a true role model for me! Thank you.

Your work is the most beautiful that I have seen in a long time. I was fortunate to see it in person at the Greek Festival. When I finish PA School here, I want the Faces of Men, Women, and Children for my office. You have the ability to make these faces REAL. I love looking for stories on the faces of people. Thanks for the awesome work you do!
