Brooklyn Rail Tree Sculpture 2011

Just completed this small table top sculpture. Entitled "Brooklyn Rail Tree Sculpture" 2011. The piece is made from a small tree branch I found yesterday, a small piece of wood and an ad page for the Brooklyn Rail art newspaper mounted on foam-core board. The piece has a nice feel to me. The little sculpture is about trees, art and the environment.
