The Life of a Seed

 

The acorn results in the oak. 

They are not the same, but there is continuity.

The red of the acorn remains but is fractured and faded in the bark. 

The small and smooth becomes tall and rough. 

The oak has become a host for vines and lichen.

 

This is for a show entitled “The Life of a Seed” at Christ Presbyterian Church, Madison, WI.  This was scheduled for Lent and Easter, but will be installed and remain in place after the Covid-19 Stay at Home restrictions are relieved.

Both pieces are carved in basswood and painted in acrylics.
