I got the idea for this when a customer asked a friend to build an outdoor/rooftop sign for a tavern. They supplied the sketch for the sign and I thought it looked a little crude, figured I could do better. I think I did but it isn’t fair because I have no pictures of the sign itself.
The base is built up MDF, carved with various tools. the trees are carved Yellow Pine, painted and applied separately. I did the carving and sent to my sister to be painted. Paint was acrylic with a clear lacquer topcoat. I still need to finish the frame and protective lexan (curved).
I think I will try a few more pieces of this type of artwork, it was a little messy with the MDF dust but was very satisfying and now I have a good sample of my sisters talent as well.
