This piece was turned from birch and then the background colors were airbrushed. The reeds and cattails were painted using India ink artist pens and the moon was painted using white acrylic paint. The flying ducks and the branches have been cut out so that what you are seeing is the black interior. I felt like that gave everything a little more ghostly appearance and the feet also add to that look. It's 6 1/2 inches wide by 10 inches tall and definitely one of a kind.
