Looking through the branches of a Ponderosa Pine in the Descanso Gardens in Los Angeles . Vibrant coloured canvas created from raw silks forms the background for scrunched up and twisted pieces of silk fabrics oversewn with freehand machine embroidery.
I took sketches , photos and gathered ideas while on a visit to old friends in Los Angeles last year to help overcome some of the difficulties that life throws at us all. Descanso Gardens is a place of Peace and a tribute to people working together to create and keep something beautiful for everyone to enjoy.
Size - stretched canvas unframed size 40cm width 50cm height 2cm deep. it can be hung as it is but for the long term framing with uv filter glass is recommended because all fabrics fade over time when exposed to daylight.
