This is my first “Art” piece for many years. I call it the “Enlightenment Tree”. This is because it reveals your mood to you before you leave the house to face the world. It also helps to remind me that it was a living 40 year old Narra Tree not too long ago.
It is made from a Narra Tree that was cut down to allow for building repairs to a neighbors house. As a person who normally only uses recycled timber for my works, I was saddened by the cutting of this tree and wanted to make it into something special. I am not sure that I have achieved that, but I have done my best by the tree in its passing. Sorry if this sounds corny but I love trees that are alive and I am inspired by them.
It has a place to hang your hat, a place to hang your umbrella and a drawer to put your keys.
Please no comments saying I am soft or I will send my poodle (really a pit bull) to bite your bum. (-: And several of my helpers have named it BIGFOOT.
