Beautiful Dan, love the red color, it does look like a raging fire, a snippet of a fire.

The more i see what passes for art in the big galleries the more I think some of the best art is right here in lumberjocks. Here is another great example.

Your work is incredible! The frames and tiles do so much to complement each other. Most definitely works of art!
