30/52 Bill L Ampen tree carving

This tree is one of many exciting finds on our recent vacation to Orlando, Florida, which included a week’s stay at the Thousand Trails Orlando Preserve campground. On our arrival at the RV resort we found our cabin, then drove down to the lake, where we found this magnificent tree draped in Spanish-moss with the carving by Bill L Ampen. Other than the signature you see here, I know nothing more about this tree or the man responsible for this work of art. My teenage daughter and her friend found the climb more enjoyable.

Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.

Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.
