Forest Filter III

Size:  Approx 21 1/2 x 21"

I had a lovely studio visit today with spouses of Woodlot Association of BC members.  A great occasion to unveil my latest forest pieces.  The background fabric is procion dyed, then silkscreened and overpainted with thickened dyes.  Distant trees are cut from polyester sheer.  Middle distance trees are fused/machine appliqued.  The piece is double batted with cotton, but the tree trunks have an extra layer.  The branches and mosses are thread sculpted.  Oil sticks are used for highlights and sunlight.

Here is a close up of the texture on one of the trunks.
