What a wonderful treasure as usual! I always have to share yours with my man; as he is a tree lover, he is particularly fond!
I love that it has a connection to another artist who must share an appreciation as well!

Hi Dan,

That is fantastic. I don’t know which I like better, the tile or the frame.

Excellent job on the finish as well.
