On the LighterSide of Wood

So after last night….

I decided it was time to resume my identity, as I am known to mortals. Last night’s photo avatar was a way of closing out a time worn photo image of my-self and, since I am much younger now, I thought I would post a newer version—vision of who I am. This one will run a short while here, till I can come up with a better picture of a hermit turned wood hobbit who lives ‘out in the woods’.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————— Hermit Turned Wood Hobbit

….should you ever go walking in my neck of the woods,
you may hear the footsteps of one who is following behind,
not that i am ever really behind but more one who is close by trees,
many are my waunderings here amongst the scattered landscape….

….but what-ever this place may be for others who come this way,
to me it is the holy ground that opens before the eye-of-i that i am,
trees give my soul the needed inspiration that feeds my spirit of wood,
so stop you may and feel my painted brush of wind that stirs the leaves
….

Now lets move on to the picture from yesterdays blog story and show an-other side….

….what ended up last night as the ‘darker side of wood’.... (hmmm, don’t we all have a dark side) had it’s be-ginnings from a picture I took last evening in the shop….

….and then that photo image comes from one wood piece that I cut and started drying out 5-6 years ago. Recently I brought this piece into my shop, and to tell the truth I just can-not stop looking over at the area in my shop, where I have placed this ‘free form wood piece’. Ah, the beauties of wood….

....worked in the area of the above mentioned piece, for the afternoon into early evening on this one here….


….and so I will be posting some more pictures and stories of this one as I continue in my working of the wood.

Thank you.
GODSPEED,
Frank

It’s like being abducted in the middle of the night and brought back, not realizing you were ever taken. Like a dream. God Bless old friend, m

I can see why you keep looking at that wood piece. Is it just me or is there something very feminine about it?
That burning burl would be the fire in its heart…

I can also see by the new avatar that you probably live closer to Santa’s Village in Jefferson, NH than I thought!
