found sculpture, St Lawrence River, 2009
I have collected pieces of driftwood for a few years now, mostly from walks on the beach or pieces I find while paddling in my canoe. This is a piece I found on an island in the middle of the St. Lawrence River a few weeks ago. It has been staring at me ever since just begging to be made into a formal piece of sculpture. The base is out of the Atlantic Ocean, and the dowel is a branch from my back yard Cherry tree.
