Charcoal Dreams of A WoodWorking Passion
….hand tools made for wood,
old ways yearn to express self,
passion breathes new flame….
….it’s not the fire with-out,
but the fire with-in,
that creates the who i am,
of my wooden landscape….
And so once again I must ask….”who lights the fire, that burns in yonder tree ”?
I’m at a new beginning here, since I’m preparing to turn the heat up some-what….and start charbroiling some oak. This wood piece is rich in ages of history, full of stories to tell and yet to be-come a work of ‘wood art’. My opportunity of yet to come, is that there are pictures to upload, the casting of a character to set in place, and then I also have to keep the work moving along ahead of the story. Now what I’m going to say next may sound as the words of a mad man, (unless you’ve read much of my previous ramblings)....and that is, the wood has not told me the end of the story as of yet, so I am working on the fly.
….more to come!
”....work smart, work safe, and live, to work the wood....”
