Artsy Farty Tuesday – The newest sculptures are done
Al finally got the finishing touches on the wood sculptures he has been working on. I have posted a few photos of him carving on them the past month or so, and now they are done. He wanted to have a variety of art to take to the art shows this summer, and a lot of people really like the wood sculptures. These first two are walnut. I love walnut, the color and the grain in this wood is amazing.
This first sculpture is three finches on a branch, The over all sculpture is shaped like a vase.
This next piece is a dove. The shape of this is more free form abstract. Again, it’s made from a beautiful piece of walnut.
I love this piece, mostly because I love dragonflies. The idea behind this one has been brewing in Al’s head for a while. The dragonflies are slowly emerging from the wood, becoming more and more detailed. I named this one Dragonflies at sunset.
We will have these, and lots more sculptures this summer at the art shows.
