I love how this piece turned out - it's a 3D version of one of my paintings called Blue Forest Geode. The inside walls are mirror board so the way the piece looks changes as you move around and see it from different perspectives. The outside of the box (which can't be seen in this photo) looks like an old and well-used Maple wood drawing board with ink and paint stains. This is in memory of my Mom, a fine artist and painter, who died in 2012 at 85. I think of this piece as a geode because it's old and beat up on the outside but shiny, faceted, and like another world inside.
