Articles of Expression With Wood

....cabin construction,
construction allows ‘wood art’,
i am mis-fit ‘tween

While out working in the cabin the other day, I noticed that this one was following me from room to room, one of my shorter pieces here….as this one still fits into the head-room of the cabin. Hmmm….not like my head-room that I carry around all the time….never could figure where those articles of expression where supposed to fit into todays world.

....or maybe after looking at the walls here in the sun-room I should have called this story….’the big green foamy stuff’ has invaded my work-space….

Thank you.

Is there a corresponding trunk and branches on the roof :-)

if only our houses could sprout roots, the wood still alive covering our homes with cooling leaves, cleaning air, holding down in high winds, partnership rather than slavery.

Frank, seems to me that you are branching out into some new areas…and if it’s of the shorter variety, shows us the tall ones…..ha

It looks just like a tree fell on your cabin.

The roof is taking root.

Hello to all who are commenting and then also those just looking….;

—hi Mark; ....last time I looked, what you see here in this room is all that remains….although I must admit, this one makes folks stop when they walk into the cabin….LOL….

—hi Barry; ....those are some great words you have penned….matter of fact, I think I will save them along with your name as the author for future reference….if I may….

—hi Rob; ....yes, I’m all-ways branching out into new visions of expression with wood, (wouldn’t want to get caught in yesterdays wood box and there sure is no-one around to follow) so I’m thinking on these as of late. Seems as if I’ve been collecting some now for about 3-4 years and so they’re fairly well dry and I’ll start working a couple soon. I have 3 in the barn, 2 of which are over 14’ tall….and then 3-4 more along with this one in the cabin here. I’ll see or try and get some pictures along with a blog story soon….

—hi Dick; ....the tree didn’t fall ‘on’ the cabin but ‘into’....and now it’s in my sight of seeing and thinking daily, now you know what grows inside my head….LOL….

—hi Karson; ....and I thought all great roofs had a root….

—hi JJohn; ....just stick around and keep reading my blog stories and you’ll get a better feel for where my mind runs too when working the wood. I never follow past woodworking ways as I’m a branch that seeks it’s own avenue of expression with and in wood. As to the wood here, well this one will become part of what I call ‘free form’ sculptured ‘wood art’. Thanks for stopping by and welcome…..

Thank you.
