A new idea and direction.....
I have been pondering a new direction for a a while now and am determined to work it out this winter. The beginning of it all begins in the pile of wood in the picture above. On my long drive home from Alabama yesterday I had PLENTY of time to work the details out. I will start trying some of the ideas out over the next few weeks.
The beginning of the process is entirely out of my hands and fascinates me to no end. Every time a piece of veneer would drop the crowd would form and watch a few minutes and then drift off to somewhere else. I on the other hand stayed to see the process from start to finish the first time I saw it a few years ago. The only thought I had going through my mind every time a section would drop to the ground was about the painting that would eventually form on these sections of wood. Well, that was three years ago and the wood has sat. This year we went back out for the day but arrived to late to get many really good pieces. We had planned on filling the van up. Fortunately, I do have enough currently to get a nice collection of work going.
