Default Tribute Pens

My wife’s mother passed away recently after losing her battle with cancer. Her funeral is this weekend. She was an Artist and painted a lot of nature settings. The pens are made from label cast from a panoramic painting of one of her favorite spots to paint. I made one for my father-in-law, my wife, and my three brother-in-laws. The bottom pen is cast in the opposite direction for my left handed wife. The long clicker pen was the right demensions for the painting to have no cropping or distortion to the image.

Well done . I suspect the left handed aspect is forgotten about by many pen turners .
