Wood.....shrinks


Remember this beautiful wood bark I posted about earlier in August?

Click Images to Enlarge:


I had big plans to paint it and make prints on fabric...

But...

It shrunk & curled up


The mostly flat pieces of bark are now all curled and shriveled up.

I set the bark aside while we finished up our wood cutting and it dried out.
So....I am on the look out for fresh bark to print with.



Wood Pile


The wood is all cut and split.
It will have the month of September to season.
Then we will bring it home to the wood shed.



This is an image of the wood pile from up above:


We went up on the ridge above and looked down...
This image is with the camera zoomed in.



This image is looking down on the woodpile...


This is where I spent most of the month of August



Lots of Thistles up above on the ridge...


Honey Bee




Thistles are beginning to bloom





As always, I enjoy sharing my photography.
Feel free to use it in your personal art work if you like.
Images are uploaded at high resolution and will print out nicely.

I love where I live. But I must say you live in a very beautiful location too.

Curled bark is maybe not a loss...try the printing the same way Jane Davila does her fish prints...apply the fabric to the painted bark.

I agree with Dottie and please where is this place !? The scenery is so breath taking !

I live in the Coastal Mountain Range of Western Oregon.
We live on a farm that was homesteaded by my husband's family in 1911. We become a Century Farm next year.
