In a private collection

A large cicada on a branch of an apple tree, carved from boxwood and colored with artist's oil paint.

As a piece nears completion, the dramatic, sculptural quality develops as the details are added. With the stark sunlight of March, the carving details are revealed. When all of the carving is done, there are moments when I waffle between leaving the wood a natural color or to totally change it by adding color.
