little trees (sculpture)

dying cedar 


i'm making mini trees lately.

it all came about by my first inspiration 
while climbing to the top of mount scott....

post oak at end of fall
i'm surrounded by post oaks. they're familiar and comforting to me.

and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
