Wood Spirit

Hubby is a chainsaw carver.
We started Lorax Carving.

He's been carving for two years now.
Sometimes he carves what he sees in the wood
and sometimes he carves what others request.

One day I asked him to carve me a wood spirit.
He didn't know what I was talking about.
"I want a face coming out of the wood.
As if you are pulling the spirit out of the wood
so we can see it."
He picked a piece of wood.
He had no plan.
He just carved.
As he reached the left eye, the sap ran from the wood.
It was a spiritual moment for him.
He carves, the wood shows him the way.

This is what it showed him that day.
