Storm Survival

As per a request from Margaret here is Storm hanging on the wall!

Trees are just incredible living plants. They with stand all types of weather, droughts, storms, flooding and scorching heat. "Storm Survival" is a tree that has been damaged/ destroyed by the elements, yet it has hope with the re growth of the new leaves that show life. This was created with upholstery remnants, hand dyed roving, the tree is free form knitting. There are three layers of fabric, plus batting. The buttons represent the damage that has fallen to the ground from the storm - Your comments are appreciated:)

I really like your use of colour, texture and the addition of the knitting on this piece. Would like to see a photo of it hanging against a plain background so I could get a better sense of proportion, size...Thanks!

P.S. That said, I think what you have done expresses very well the survival of the trees in/after a storm.
