A true work of art….excellent sculpturing…the shape is very pleasing….and the finish is perfect (by the way…can you elaborate on how you finish a piece? Is it finished for exterior?)

This is wonderful, I love the way that the light, shadows, curves, and colors interact with each other.

I like it. Is it all one piece? It looks like that tree had a pretty good size diameter. As usual, you take a pretty good photograph.

Oh, hell yes! Six foot, is it? Wow… maybe I could start out with one six INCHES tall and see how that works. I am just not at a skill level that would allow me to tackle a beauty such as this.
Thanks for sharing and inspiring..

Stunning. I’d love to see some other views, and a hint or two about how you went about making it.
