Moodboard: February

Hello February! Skies are still overcast and temperatures are low. But the new life is already stirring out there.

After Hurricane Ike Wrecked Galveston Island In 2008, Local Artists Turned Tree Stumps Into Beautiful Sculptures


After Hurricane Ike hit Galveston Island in 2008, there was little left intact plus there was a major impact on woody plants. A year later, the city agreed to turn dead trees into pelicans, dolphins and musical instruments.
