OK… it is official… I hate you.
(that, of course, was spoken by my internal, evil, twin brother who is bitter, and steeped in envy and jealousy)
Personally, I think you have a fantastic hand and eye for seeing the hidden beauty.
Love it and all your pieces.

Great piece! Love the photo setting, too.

Jeffro, it is absolutely beautiful and your back drop selection is perfect. Congratulations for a wonderful piece of work.

Sweet, reminds me of the forests of brown kelp we have on our coast.

You have a great eye and the talent to bring what you see out for us to see also.

For this we thank you.

Amazing…How much would you charge for a piece like this. So much work. Would you kindly share about the finish you use. And what grit sandpaper you go up to? Again…terrific!

Thanks in advance!

this was a fun piece, I went to 320 grit, the red wood is finished out with tung oil and the base is finished out with a satan poly there is a ton of hand work that went into this piece. I have this one in a gallery retailing for 1200 hundred, im working on another one thats a little bigger I was thinking of doing a series of see life sculptures. Thank you much
