It is a wall hanging depicting a steady old Oak Tree passing it's time in the woods on the edge of a small ravine. There are remnants of a tree that has passed on the other side of the ravine. There is a lot of detail in this carving. it is one of my favorite Oak Tree carvings. It measures 17" tall x 13 1/2" wide x 1 1/4" thick. It has a lot of depth.These Oak Trees are the most tedious to carve and the most time consuming to make of all my carvings. But they are my favorite to look at and enjoy.

The technique I use is called Pierced Relief. It is carved out of one piece of wood and nothing is added. I have been carving since 1971 and a tree was the first carving I did. I have always been stimulated to carve a resemblance of a tree out of a tree. My technique has evolved over all of these years to what you see here. I keep seeing ways to make things more life like. And I love a piece to look like it is in the middle of a story that each observer can make up. Sometimes a different story each time we look at it and sometimes the same one. I love giving a piece the feeling of action. Sometimes tranquil and sometimes playful. I love it all.

I carved it out of a Big Leaf Maple Burl. The grain is really something to look at! A burl is usually caused by a trees reaction to an agro-bacteria. It starts sending out a huge number of buds showing birds eye grain through out the burl. It is very unusual and is very interesting to look at.
