"Rustic Retreat" 2012 by Jon Gosling
This Cottonwood bark fairy village is hand carved and detailed in my studio, using various gouges and knives, then lightly touched with the finest acrylics and sealed in a non toxic water based poly for protection. New details for 2012 have been implemented into the design, and there is a small balanced nail hole on the back for wall hanging. Piece measures approx 17" tall and is signed.
I am now adding trees and to give an even more realistic feel to my pieces. It's all about quality not quantity with me, and though this may mean less pieces will be completed this year, it also means the ones I finish will be extra special ;)
