We look for hints in this world of the life to come: love, life, beautiful and glory. Christ saw this the other way. He found reminders of his home: love, life beauty and glory. Among the trees, the Tree of Life and among the hills, a stream of living water
(Genesis 2:8-20, Proverbs 3:13-18, Revelation 22:1-2)
The levels are in. Next details, lots of them.
I’ll be participating in an Advent art show with the theme oh Home – Away from Home. I’m working on a vertical format woodcarving featuring an image of the Tree of Life.
I am using mineral oil to seal the wood. I’m also using a stain than can be light to dark gray. It is made by soaking steel wool in vinegar. To attach the nuts hatches, I’m using dowels and glue. This glue is made by cooking milk powder with vinegar to get curds, these are drained, rinsed and combined with baking soda and some water to get the preferred thickness.
It is supposed to be waterproof. Wisconsin weather will test that claim.;
So with a move, a wedding and other things we have been inactive. This will change. Stay tuned folks.
I am participating at the Earth Sculpture 2015 show at the Farley Center. There are 13 installations at the show, which you can visit at any time. The concept is to use resources from the land. I chose to install two shallow relief carvings of cardinals.
