I just couldn't resist posting this today as I have a little time. This is a time study of my Madrona/Arbutus trees that are performing so beautifully. The plan is to take pictures of the same part of several trees about 1-2 weeks apart. This is one tree whose bark is just spectacular imo. What do you think? I am also gathering the peeled bark from the ground with the intention of doing more dyeing with some it and also by putting some gel medium on some beautiful pieces for some sort of mixed media piece. Playing around with Elements I hope to extract this tree from it's background ...that's one plan anyway!
