During 2011 I am posting images of things from the natural world that inspire or inform my art. My installations and sculptures are viewable at www.ryksenn.com.

Feb 23, 2010 Manzanita Trees
The burnt orange, super smooth, bark of Manzanitas looks like skin; it
fits tightly over the trunk and limbs, but the bark has wrinkles in
the "V" areas and around the branch scars. It is the imperfections
that draw your attention to the perfect smoothness.
