The Adventures of Tree Girl / Carved Wood Curiosities


Treegirl is just about ready for her close up, she measures 5 feet. She'll have many friends in the gallery with her, 38 pieces in all!

These three have a wooden boat they like to ride in

                  

              Some carved Wood Taxidermy made from Driftwood
 
His head and tail are bobble and move

"Boone" the horse has salvaged parts some, from Portland city hall
This little puppet measures 34" and is resting up

She'll be dancing for a month at the show
                                        


From an earlier photo shoot, you can see the scale of the work!

Albino Squirrel  Puppet will be perched in the window and bounce on a spring!

With Boatman at the helm , were deciding who will sit where

 
This large painting will add color to the wall
This branch looked so much like a hand  it needed just a bit of shaping and just the right perch


 
  Some Birds will fly and some have a special perches


This Dapper Fellow is 22 inched high and a favorite of mine, we went through 3 hats to find just the right one!

 Here is the Show Card before we added the title, I love it! There are 38 pieces in all
TreeGirl will be hanging around Guardino Galley starting May 30th 6-9 pm Opening Reception! until June 24
