A railing that I have been working on

This is one side of a handrail that I have been working on. Now just waiting on good weather to install it. There are 2 hand rail that go with it. I have to wait to get the railings installed to fit the hand rails.
They are heat colored over rough sand, linseed oil while warm and many layers of clear. The base has to be core drilled and I have to wait until the weather won't be below freezing for a couple of days. The flower inset matches a design in the front door and is 1/4" sq bar all hand forged
