Over the years I have made a lot of abstract works mainly in bird form. This is an example of an interesting commission I did in 2003. This piece was a Fiftieth anniversary gift from My Cousins and I to my aunt and uncle. We all felt the abstract characters posses a feeling of the spirt of Pete and Arlene as a couple. I wanted to create a feeling of love and closeness so I merged them in hart shapes. The piece was created in Ash. I burnished the wood to create a smooth raised grain surface. I used gold leaf and clear poly for the finish. Can you get a feel for their spirit's from viewing the piece?
