This makes me think of what would occur if Picasso and Boulanger collaborated in woodworking.

Good to see you embrace an eclectic assortment of styles in your work. Big words for ‘you can do things in different ways’.

mmh: Just think what it is like having them in your head trying to get out!Jim: that’s because I’m a deep thinkerMartyn: thanks, it comes from a tad of schizophrenia & a dollop of multiple personality!Appreciate all the comments and apologize for the horrible photograph. I have tried for 6 mos to get a picture of this. It either sucks in the light like a black hole, or reflects it like crazy. My little pocket camera squishes pictures. This is really taller & skinnier. Not so squat. (much like myself LOL) Charlie: I hated his books, why would he like my art? HAHAHA LOL

Cool, I like it. I had fun deconstructing and reconstructing the parts back to the original in my head, like a puzzle.
Does that mean you are a puzzling person? Or is it age that puzzles you? ;)

Mary Anne, are you trying to confuse the aged and senile? LOL It’s no puzzle. It’s what I look like trying to get out of bed in the morning after cutting ,splitting and stacking 5 cords of firewood. I know what confuses you..there’s no critter on my body anywhere., so you can’t relate. Next work of art I’ll try incorporate various animals. Hey I have bowls like that already made. ( you did relate to my fish bowl? LOL) I’ll post it soon. It’s a series of 3 as a tribute to the northwoods.

When I was a kid, I thought I knew it all.As I age everything in life becomes a puzzle.Animals are uncomplicated and true.
5 cords?! Ouch! You wanna come over and take care of the two oak trees I had cut down?

That is great Michelle. It reminds me of my daily schedule of work/yard/house/writing/takecareofmother, which is those three split in the center. :-)Really a nice turning. You are very creative. Rest that sore body!
PS – that must have been fun, to cut it and then rearrange the pieces, “Maybe this way, no, maybe this way, no, ah-ha! there it is!”

Kinda cool Super Squirrel Girl. It has what I call movement with all the lines. Every thing is not stright lines if you trace the lines you move around. I like it bunches. You know me I love Walnut.
