Hey @Allen_Brooks

I totally see the painting when I look at this image, it’s amazing the connections the brain makes.
The light is beautiful, filling the scene with gold and warm tones, just making the wood veins pop.
I do think that bit on the URC it’s a pain but I see that a tighter crop would mess up the composition. Maybe reducing the highlights of that shinny darker area could reduced the distraction it generates.
As it is, its a great interesting image thanks so much for sharing.


Allen, that’s a great looking pair of owl eyes and knubbly nose. The tones in the wood are nicely warm and inviting. Too bad there wasn’t a bit more wood in the URC. I’d try some (or maybe even a lot of) burning-in up to reduce it’s visual influence. It’s a minor detail on a fine bit of vision (pun intended…).

I think I remember this one, Allen. A beautifully polished piece of wood and a very cool face.

What a great find, Allen - and how readily it does indeed bring the painting to mind. Wonderful choice for the theme !!
