Winter branches

I find inspiration in small details. With winter- and spring- the landscape is harsh and monochromatic. However, I love how I can see into the trees in this season. With the leaves gone, the trees expose their languid branches. I worked with Alpaca for this scarf. It's so amazingly soft. The natural colors in the fleece look like stone. I laid out the fibers like the trees outside my studio- long, thin, bare, and dark. You can see it's Etsy listing HERE. Today, I took her out for a photo shoot- spurred on by the afternoon sun casting shadows on the bare lawn. I love the textural contrast between the felt and the birch bark.
