The old man in the wood

My childhood friend sees things. Things that most everyone else doesn’t.  If someone would have told me that Liz would grow up and use a power saw, I would have laughed with every bit of my being.  My memories of her are of ribbons and bows, solos at the music festivals, and oddly enough, calligraphy.

Her first carving class was back in 1993.  Where she is now, is self-employed and doing what she loves, everyday!  Her art is something to be seen, and I was lucky enough to watch as she worked her magic on a piece of birch wood, and released the old man that lived inside.

Images 3 and 4 were submitted to Our 52 Lifestyle project with the theme  Free.    Anyone wanting to see more images from this group, head over here to the super talented Coleen Hodges’s website. She posts a selection of images from each week’s theme, and they are all incredible.
