It's the time of year when the trees show us their bones...and in the case of the tree I was working from when doing this sketch, the remnants of last year's seed pods and leaves. Loved seeing them clustered at the tips of the branching.
The simplicity of this is striking in person. The tree is done in silver thread, and the coloration of the pollinators are subtle, but more saturated than this photo shows.
Cotton, silk, free-motion stitching.
