I made this from a log I found in my pile of fire wood. Part of the log was eaten by insects, so I cut away the solid part and started to remove all the soft wood. After that’s done, I took a Dremel and polished the surface. I made a base for it and finished it with tung oil. I entered it in the first art show of the season in our area. Should hear soon if it was accepted.

Absolutely love it. There is no greater artist then mother nature and an eye to capture it.
