When I first saw this picture I knew I wanted to make it. Some things just hit you like that, you just know. It may not be the most diffiicult picture that I have done, but I do like it. This picture is very delicate with the lightning coming down from the sky, but the glass will keep it from getting broke.

It is made out of 1/8” Baltic Birch plywood. The picture is 19 1/2” x 22 1/4”x 3/4”. It is matted with flat black mat and background is also the same.

The picture frame is made of reclaimed barnwood. This frame has some cool looking grain to it as well. I tried to capture it in the picture hope you can see it.

Beautiful work. I notice that you are from Allen, KS. Back when I was on the cutting horse circuit, had some good friends from there.

Oh my goodness! This is stunning! The positive/negative use of the wood is … WOW! I am new to woodworking/scrolling and was trying to figure out how to incorporate a horizon in a scrolled picture and here it is! I know this has been posted for a while, I still have to say it is beautiful and thanks for sharing!
