      Both simple and complex - how cool is that?!

      I think this is stellar. As I looked at it I thought ..how marvelous this would look with it's opposite near by...all black with the same design in reverse. Outstanding concept.

      Thank you, Dale from Utah. I used to carve the powder at Alta and Snowbird.

      Thanks for being such a loyal fan.

      Thank you Michelle,
      I have a larger one in Ziricote in process. Six inch wide ebony is hard to find.

      Robert I keep coming back to look at this piece. Looking down on it is just great. You are an inspiration to a beginner.

      Thanks for looking, Ronald. I really like the color of bleached Sugar Maple.

      A friend who paints landscapes told me this piece reminded her of a Mondrian painting.

      Great piece Robert. I don't normally like segmented work but this has got a wow factor, well done.
