Ohhhh this is so beautiful, I love the wrapping grains and colour of the wood/stain especially.
and I meant to say, well done Tim! Its excellent!
Imagine as if the tiny little grains on the box are twisting around the wood like a pair of arms. I enjoy that. Can't you feel that? You do. Otherwise, those pictures wouldn't have any kind of resonance. Lest they be wrapped within some sort of sentimentality. I completely understand that sense of creation down to even the specific point of nature's making. Or maybe I'm just drunk. Check "all of the above". You're bound to get something right.
Speak your piece.
