I have taken more than a few photos of trees. I am attracted to their shape, their colour but most of all their texture.
Some are smooth.
Some have interesting colour.
Some have layers of strata.
Some have interesting holes hidden inside.
Some have the look of cooled molten lava.
Some have been weathered into rags.
These beautiful textures offer a lot of design opportunities for the Abstracting from Nature class I will be taking with Jane Sassaman at Quilt Canada 2016 in a couple of weeks.
