My first sculpture

This is a picture I took of my first attempt at metal sculpture.  It is the base and trunk of a giant sequoia tree.  It looks a bit shiny, it needs coloring of some sort, I have not figured that part out yet. Any suggestions would be appreciated.  I guess I never thought that the picture would be laying on its side, lol.
