Trees fascinate me and bark on every tree is so unique. I printed my photograph onto fabric and heavily thread painted each curve and crack of the bark. To add more texture, I painted cheesecloth and placed it on top to give depth and dimension. Mixed media and inks were also used to define the tiniest of details on the bark. Rattail binding was used to complete the piece.
