Wow Joe another awesome piece ! do you like the satin finish or the high gloss (I think a High gloss makes the color richer and adds depth)?

I’m glad you changed the picture of yourself now I can relate with the artist.

Joe, another one with spectacular contrast in the way the grain accepts the dyes. The color combinations remind me of Celestial Goede…they work very well together.

Thanks for posting it.

I really love the texture you manage to show with your technique. I love this series. The wood looks more like gemstone than wood.
