Redwood Assemblage #40


i have to say this one makes me quite happy. its fun and spunky and like a little child. so far there is no end in sight though i have stopped for a few days to just let this stuff 'rest'. it remains an exciting challenge to keep creating these wood assemblages from such a sparse chunk of materials. bits and pieces are what i have access to, long thin strips and little chunky rectangles. i wish i could find some larger pieces to cut larger triangle ends, but i gets what i get. and i make do with it.

I like this one! I Really LIKE this one! It has such a happy feel to it, pointing this way and that way and a bit of a dangle thing too. COOL

I like this one. The addition of found objects is adding in another dimension. Only your imagination is the limit ... gosh, if the bottom piece moved, you'd have a faux clock! I'll have to send you a couple found object trinkets when I get home.

thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment and for pointing out the mistake on my book link-- my early posts were quite a learning curve for me and I have gotten better at links and so on... I will go and correct it.
I like your blog posts and work very much-- I love weathered, rusty, worn objects and sometimes use them in my work-- and always love to see other artists and works who do the same.
