I made this some time ago and thought I would post it now before it is given away as a gift.
It is a deodar cedar cone, hand painted with an acrylic water drop and puddle on a custom oak base.
The glass dome was purchased.

Pretty thing, Hans. Who would have thought a techie like you would be artistic…........(-:

We are in the middle of a very nice summer here, although, come August, we will probably start to get a lot of rain. Busy with gardens and the shop…..........

Thank all for the more than kind comments!

Jim, many techies have a soft side and sometimes we gotta let it out.
