I started making mosaics from wood using the left over pieces from the hardwood flooring jobs I would do. I was forever throwing away the offcuts and decided to use them in art. I no longer lay floors but I love the style I developed from the earlier pieces I made.
When I first put this together, I was going to add paint strokes to it, like the ocean driftwood one in the link above, but I like it just the way it is. I see the white line about a third of the way up as the horizon and at times it looks like a little sleepy shipping village at night and at other times it looks like earth viewed from space.
This piece was made from 5 lengths of reclaimed lumber that had been aging in the elements for many years.
