    Brewing Storm

    Brewing Storm is from my Naturally Abstract collection and was composed at the Aiken County Historical Museum in Aiken, SC. This is also part of my sub-collection that I call Stump Art as each piece is found on the surface of a stump. The gorgeous colors were helped by golden light washing...
