Her Favorite Reading Place
I was inspired to make this one of a kind work of art while walking in Mid town Sacramento. I had been watching all of the phases that this tree went through over the year. I was captured by the way that the enormous branches twist and turn, reaching out into the street.
I took the tree out of the city and placed it in what I imagined would be the perfect reading spot.
Some of the leaves are gently falling down to a little girl on a blanket reading to her best friend.
Like painting with strokes of fabric, hundreds of tiny pieces are meticulously added to a canvas and stitched together using my sewing machine to sketch details.
