Embraced by a kiss of light
Forever in wood
These images in wood embrace many memories.
I’ll start with the wooden eagle. It was handed down to me from my mother who received it as a gift from her sister in Ukraine years ago.
The wooden sculpture of two faces was my only attempt at carving in wood when I was a young adult with dreams of being a professional artist.
The turtle key chain on the eagle’s wing was a gift from my oldest daughter a few years back when she went to Hawaii. One of my dream travel locations, but I’ve never been.
Finally, a black, wooden pepper mill, that belongs to my youngest daughter (on the right). I loved how the late afternoon light just barely highlights the outer form.
Thanks to TJ for inspiring my day.
