Merlayna's West Coast Wood Sculptures
wood art sculptures & carvings

In a November windstorm a large walnut tree blew over. Here is some of the wood:

I chose a small log for my first piece. There isn't much/any heartwood in it, but random markings make it interesting.

There was a branch protrusion (upper left corner of photo above) and it was incorporated to make the 'dancing foot'

The piece is sanded with 80 grit

I've wrapped the not-yet-dry piece in a towel and placed it in a plastic bag to slow the drying process. When it's dry the sanding will be completed. I think this piece looks like a 'Spring Dance'.
