All the houses are carved out of cottonwood bark, the thicker the bark the more detail I can put into a carving. The tree itself has to be dead for a few years before the bark can be pulled off, It is then pressure washed, dried and the lose bark removed. And now the lay out and carving process begins!

I will soon be giving these points to friends on DA - thank you all so much for donating.

First off, THANK YOU for your visit! All points donated will be given away to artists who are in need, so please hand over some points or I will send the wee folk to kidnap your animals and first born!.... OK, I am sorry, they won't take your first born or your second or even your third, and forget about the animals, how about giving up some points if you like my art, how does that sound? PLEASE!!!!!!! And besides, I got little wee's to put through school, and one in Day Care, I am under a wee bit of stress, but if any of you lady's would donate some points I will send the wee folk over to give you a small kiss on your cheek while you are catching zzzzzzzzz! so hows that? PLEASE HELP!

Missing you this St. Patrick's Day Forest.

The leprechauns and wee folk are running amok without you here to keep them in check.

I was going to wish you happy birthday....but now  I find that you passed away. Thanks for your beautiful art you shared with us. My thoughts are with the family.  We are all one....past, present and future. That is a comforting thought.....we come from Akasha and return to it. We come from God and return to God.......:meditation:
