Image of the Day - Bedlam
This hulking 5 foot high piece of driftwood started out life as a piling. After years of floating around in the Mississippi River it came to rest in a convenient spot for me to retrieve it and bring it back to the studio.
After much cleaning, sanding and grit removal the remaining structure was still strong. I suspect that the piling had an overlay of tar on it once which inhibited the piece from rotting through. Instead this intaglio or lines and crevices was created.
The piece was mounted on a 2' x 2' heavy tile base. This photo shows the piece at about 50% completion. I've decided to do very little to it because its naturally just so beautiful. But I do have a few plans in store for it now that its been painted gold. I'll post again when it nears completion. You can see an earlier view of it here taken when it was first brought in.
