Nature abstract

cathyscacheOctober 28, 2009

Trying something different with this one. I've used wood rounds I cut, birch bark, beach rocks and decorative nails. It's different. I wanted to see how the bark would look. I like the way the wood and bark look together. Already planning my next one with some of the same. This was another experiment and I like it. And check out our new baby "Rosie". She is just too sweet. Part pit bull and something else, not sure what. "Little Miss Rosebud"

I love how you use wood, when I first started looking at this forum I fell in love with your file cabinet, Rosie is very cute.

Thanks EMT and Studio....I really love nature and using what it has to offer. And I love finding new ways to use it. I've got another idea with my next project. But gotta finish what I have going first. I tend to start more and leave the others hanging. Gotta finish up so what I have so I have work space!!! LOL Later

I finally finished and grouted yesterday. I really like the wood and bark look. so I'll be finding ways to use them both more. I think I'm going to call this one "Kidney Stones". The wood ended up in a kidney shape (not intentional) and rocks inside so...My GD says wow Granny cool purse, a friend says it looks like an indian something. So I guess it is whatever the beholder wants it to be. I guess that's the abstract part??? LOL...I'll seal after a bit more clean up....On to the next one
