About this artwork
I am learning, slowly, that the only thing to do when I fall or fail is to go again. A do over with more patience, wisdom and, hopefully, humor.Found, reclaimed and resurrected - an abstract wood relief ÒpaintingÓ in an assortment of soft and hard woods puzzled together within a salvaged antique window frame. I am a collector and gatherer of everything left behind, overlooked, tossed aside. From abandoned barns in Maine to kitchen remodels in Massachusetts to a razed rectory built in 1893 - each piece of wood carries a history and a past and now a new purpose. Each piece of wood has been individually cut and sanded by hand, some may receive a color treatment of stain or paint, some will be left in their natural state, before the entire piece is finished with Tung Oil. The artwork arrives ready to hang, signed on the back.
