My inspiration. I don’t think I nearly do the photo justice. I didn’t really try to capture the colors, but I used it as a guide to lay out the larger forms of the trees. I simplified and cut down on the number, of course; but tried to keep a similar rhythm.
I learned much as I was sewing the block. I’d never tried anything like it before. I think I could do it better now that I’ve done it once, come closer to my original vision. But it’s time to move on to the next new thing.
