CC#5WP2011 — Center City seen in early morning light. Occasionally pieces of wood come to hand that have interesting burl patterns or knots which are just too artfully beautiful to cover over with paint. Such was the case with both todays and yesterdays views of Center City, where I’ve allowed major areas of the upper sections of wood background to remain natural; and in todays case, to even predominate in the composition. Apparently the idea worked, because friends saw the piece, loved its spontaneity and purchased it on the spot during a visit from New Hampshire soon after its creation. There’s something warm and wonderful about natural wood that speaks to the nature spirit in all of us…
