Rocky Mountain Blue

Rocky Mountain Blue is my biggest hollow form completed to date,coming in at 17" diameter. Juniperus scopulorum This piece was roughed out last year and and now i got to finish it. The inlay is turquoise and lots of it. Finish waterlox with three stage buff. Photographing this piece was also a real pain because of the gloss, i must have took over four dozen pictures using different lighting techniques and finally sufficed with doing the pictures out side. I'm still not happy with how they turned out but they turned out much better than any others. I entered this piece and three others in the New Mexico state fair, Fine arts gallery. I'm hoping i do good so wish me luck.
