Life Is A Dream On African Mahoghany

This piece is part of a series that I created for Fall 2011. The sizes are larger, the pieces are a bit more colorful and most importantly, where appropriate, I am including inspirational phrases and quotations. This helps the pieces to have more of a presence and be a more inspirational part of your life. We all need constant reminders!

This design is laser engraved on a piece of African Mahogany that has a subtle, warm red tone. The horizontal aspect of the grain suggested a natural landscape, that in turn suggested the quotation you see here. It is from a song by J. Donald Walters titled "Life is a Dream". The timeless advice of the song matches the timelessness of the flowing river and restless clouds. The design was cut with a CNC router and then hand painted with colors that suggest the colors of nature. It is mounted on a base of solid Red Oak.
