This will most likely be the last of my series. the first picture is of #5, the second picture is of #4 & 5 together on a shelf in front of my window. It appears I like to take beautiful wood and poke holes in it.:-) Black limba again, and about 8 inches in diameter. Unfortunately one cannot really see all the detail in these pieces,i.e. varying levels of erosion on the wood, because I only have a pocket digital. it does ok generally, but it is not good if one needs tiny details recorded. Hope they interest you & you enjoy seeing them. I’ve had a ball making them

You already know, I like this series a lot Michelle.
When I saw this one my first impression was a memory of sitting on a Polynesian beach, looking out to sea.
(It gave me a kink in the neck.)
If you look at the gradient from light in the foreground (bottom in that orientation) to dark in the distance, it looks very much (to me) like an open seascape below a lightly streaked sky. Just me …....

Great series, can’t wait to see where you go next.

Very nice, as usual, but what is a “pocket digital”, Michelle?

I really like this series. They look like sunbursts from afar.

Wow! Those look even more amazing with that blue sky, and snow, behind them.

your creations are always really excellent looking…even with a pocket digital.
Getting good pictures is as much of an art as creating the art.
Have you looked into a photo cube for taking your pictures?
