Woodpile Tree

Woodpile Tree

18 1/2″  x  21 1/2″   Woodpile Tree is an assemblage piece in my tree series. Old dominoes make up the tree, hence the name “woodpile” from a term used in the game for the pile players take their pieces from. Also known as the “boneyard,” which I like better, but since the dominoes are not of bone, but of wood, I chose the more proper term. The box was a partitioned shadowbox, which I renovated and lined with a greenish blue paper to give a bit of color.

Among the old dominoes, I found one hand made replacement piece. I love the look and feel of it and rather than it being lost among the branches of the tree, I felt it needed some attention. It sits at the base of the tree, adhered to the magestic box frame. The work can be hung, or stand alone.
