HERON CALENDAR COMMISSION ACRYLICS ON CEDAR W/RED OAK FRAME SPRING 2022
A friend and former student saw my HERON CALENDAR on a FaceBook post and asked if I could make her one with a heron on it too. We decided that a flying heron would look good. This is the result. The design for the heron was influenced by both Northwest Coast Native and especially Celtic art traditions. I made the frame out of red oak using pegged, hand-joined, mortise-and-tenon construction methods. I used the Japanese technique (shou-sugi-ban) of charring and oiling the oak to finish the frame.
