An ode to an oak. Near my home out in the fields where I walk is a wonderful solitary oak. Such great trees are the oaks! Strong, steadfast, lovely. I sculpted this bird of  paper mache. I used natural papers for final layer, and adorned it with my own paintings of oak leaves and acorns. I sculpted the legs from steel wire.
Protected with matte varnish.
