Oregon Beaver

Beaver Art on Driftwood
Astoria, Oregon ~ September 30, 2005

I found this very cool wood-burned driftwood at an estate sale here in Astoria. Somebody had more than average talent. It looks like an old engraving or a book illustration. The date above is when I took the photos, which was near the time I bought the piece. Unfortunately, I sold it on eBay, and it was probably one of the dumber things I've done; for what I got, I should have kept it. At least I have the photos.

Beaver Art on Wood There must be a story here, but I'll probably never know what it is. A pop-top hanger. Nice touch.

Very cool, indeed. Pack rat that I am, and fond of unique one-of-a-kinds, I don't think I would've let go of this one. I love the color you used for the background for this shot... brown and light aqua are a lovely combination.

I love this! I would have certainly bought it too. Kind of sad that you let it go, but that just means that now you have room for the next wonderful find, right? I adore the pop top hanger!
