2 of 6 in progress #2

The stitching started with these pale blue line, which was the immediate intuitive impulse to start with and it was a full day later before I recognized the lines as trees, which is fitting as I am intending to emphasize the cathedral like quality of the right panel. Many years ago hiking up a mountain stream in Dolly Sods Wilderness I experienced and recognized the tree canopy flanking the stream, soaring up and filtering the light as the inspiration for imagining and building cathedrals. Lately it seams I have traded in exploring the wilderness for exploring the garden, I feel incredibly fortunate for both experiences. All rights reserved, Karin Birch 2012.
