Artist Statement: My embellishments are basically patterns and textures and I often follow growth rings of the wood for an organic look.
In 2008 I developed a pattern based on the shape of tears, I could not get a tear drop pattern to flow with it's self so by combining two tears, bottom to bottom I was able to get a pattern that flowed nicely with its self and happened to have a look of motion too. I call this my ( Tears of the Son ) pattern. It reminds me of tears of sadness that come with life and also the tears of gladness that also come with life. It is a little corny but I appreciate the happy tears of life more with the sad tears to remind me of life's trials.
This pattern has become my favorite pattern for embellishment and with endless variations I can see using it for many years to come.
