This is a turning I made the other day out of an old 4×4 redwood post I found. My girlfriend painted the sparrow on it. It’s always cool doing projects with her. We have made a few xmas ornaments and decorations recently too that I may post. She does a great job painting. This piece is for sale. Visit www.azuremoons.etsy.com for more information. Thanks for looking.

Like like the earth tones in the paintings.
It certainly has a Spanish/ Mexican influence.

Just way too much talent in this team!

The rest of us may as well give up!!

It is really a wonderful thing to see two people working together, who have both managed to realize they truly have a gift, and are making full use of it, together!
