The Tree of Life (36"x 46")
The strong images in Gustav Klimt's The Tree of Life caught my eye but the tones and shapes in the garments of the embracing couple were the essence of what I wanted to capture. They had a strength and subtle beauty that I tried to reflect in my shawl. Photographing the shawl on an old driftwood tree trunk with the ocean swirling around it seemed like a good juxtaposition of life and decay.
Made of handspun Blue Faced Leicester yarn.
