I pulled some pieces from in front of my neighbors, destroyed home a few doors down, in order to give them some token from the windblown oak that has left them in domiciliary limbo.
After some research, i realized a Dryad may be the best symbol for such a life change. I revisited the pile of branches from the -at least five foot diameter granddaddy- oak, and found her…
I guess it is my first real chainsaw carving. -and first attempt at that much face.
-oak is not my favorite, and this had soft and hard spots all mixed in that made it a little tough.
-i liked that it had a belly button place, complete with fuzz and a pecan that had been embedded for…well, i did not count the rings. -knocked it off in a sanding accident -retrieved part of it.
