Urban Sonoran Desert miniature accent art piece procured from an abandoned, dead, Palo Verde Tree. I guess I would call this abstract art. I resisted the urge to over sand and polish this piece. I simply cross cut the end of this as it was rotted and decaying. When i did, I noticed a most unusual face inside. I think I said some thing like “well hello there”. I often talk to my art in such a fashion. Especially when a piece actualizes or “comes alive”. If that makes me crazy then I don’t want to be sane. Ok, I digress. Sometime words escape me when trying to describe some of my art. This piece seemed to create itself. I had a heck of a time getting my masonry bit through this rock. Not sure what exactly it is, but its not flagstone. I secured this piece with some glue and one drywall screw coming up through the bottom Putting this together was, indeed, a real scream. Enjoy!
All comments and inquiries are welcome. Thanks for taking a look. Cheers!
