I had a long piece of live edge white cedar, and it kept getting shorter. Before there was nothing left, I thought I'd try my hand at combining carving and burning. What I ended up with was a brook trout in a riffle, waiting for a stonefly nymph to let go of that rock and come to dinner. It's all there, just under the surface, if you look through the moving water, the distortion of the light and the lines of the fish and rocks. It's all there. You just have to take some time to breath, smell the evergreens, and look harder than looking at the clock at work.

About my art "convases":
I choose the wood for my art by it's character, not its species. You will find knots, cracks, natural deformities, uneven surfaces and textures, as well as the ocassional saw mark. These are all things that speak to me when selecting my next canvas. They are not finished, finely sanded and planed but instead what we find ourselves surrounded by in nature when we venture out into it to forget the rat race for a little while. They are truly a mixture of rustic and refined, covering and blending these things with my art.
I would also like to make note of where they should be hung. If you have a deck outside, you know it needs to be sealed every couple years or the sun will bleach it. And that your fire wood pile or that drift wood found on the river bleaches in the sun. The same will happen to a woodburning, no matter what it is sealed with given enough time. It's my suggestion that my art only be displayed indoors, and not somewhere that it will recieve regular, direct sunlight. Just like that wood outside, the sun's UV shows no mercy.
