New Tapestries in the Shop – Colorado Scenery and Roots of Life!

Today I released three new photos as Wall Tapestries and I hope you love them as much as I do!

I had a customer in Australia ask me about my Summit, Colorado photo, and whether or not it could be made into a wall hanging, and voila! It was done. She and her husband had recently spent some time in that part of Colorado, snowboarding in the back-country, and the image looked much like they’d remembered. Pristine mountains, crisp air and tall pines. I’m always happy when I can show people an image that fits their memory of a place and experience.

Roots of Life is an image I’ve been quite attached to for a long time. Ever since I wandered into an Illinois forest 6 years ago, and spent about an hour hanging out around this magnificent tree. Because it’s so alive, I never even thought of the tree in black and white, but when a customer asked for a black and white version of a print, I found that I also loved it! It works great as a print or tapestry. Exceptionally eye catching subject in all its strength and persistence, and it’s nearly symmetrical in its design. Perfect nature.

Finally, “Tree Break” is another favorite of mine from a cabin with a spectacular view that we stayed in last winter in Southern Colorado. Most days in Colorado it’s sunny, no matter what time of year. In fact its one of the sunniest states in the country. However when it snows, it really snows and it’s usually quite a sight to see. This storm lasted all day and dumped nearly two feet of snow on us, my favorite kind of snow is when there is A LOT of it, so this was perfect. The break in the trees shows the aspen grove below that cabin, almost obscured by flurries but just visible. Its a photo taken on film with a medium format camera. Hope you love it as much as I do!

Thanks for checking out my newest tapestries! Definitely more to come!
