I tried the fireplace first, but you can see it’s already pretty crowded.
I bought a long new redwood 4” x 12” beam just to have it around. By and by, I started carving it for sculpture projects. Some worked out, some didn’t. When you have a beam and the project goes sour, well, you still have a beam.
So, I used one of those second chance boards to make this “owl / not owl” piece.
It’s considered a “self-portrait without a face,” which means it’s made out of old things, parts and materials that are uniquely mine. So, if you know me, you’d know that piece is mine without having to be told.
Materials: mixed media carving, mostly redwood with plexiglas
about 24″ tall (as shown); and
When assembled with 8-leg wooden base it stands about 6′ tall. The slender legs are the adjustable portion of a retired picnic table umbrella. And,
When the legs are pulled together, the owl looks like it is sitting atop a large bush.
These parts and materials are left over from my previous projects.
