I realized I can show you guys something without ruining a surprise! This is an ornament I made for my sister and brother-in-law... It's a have-a-safe-travel-home-for-Christmas horse totem! In Native American culture horses represent, among other things, travel.
I drew out the horse shape with the Scandinavian dala horse (I tend to be drawn to Scandinavian design) and the rocking horse (reinforcing the movement aspect) as inspiration. Of course I had to throw in some triangles and color blocking on this beautiful maple wood! (I'm going to add a screw hook so it can hang!)
p.s. I'm way behind on my blog reading, but hope to catch up with you all soon! Hope you guys have a fantastic weekend!
