Description

Green trees and button grass By Cindy Watkins

Textile Artwork BY Cindy Watkins

Trees number 389 to 400

39 cm x 29cm or 15.25” x 11.5”

Natural dyed silk and cotton. Freestyle stitched.

“Green Trees and button grass” is part of an art project called 5000 Trees. This work was inspired by the book The Hidden Life of Trees.
Each of my textile artworks holds within its fibers the essence of the Tasmanian rainforest that grows on my property at Golden Valley. The silk used in each work is hand dyed with the gum leaves collected from the forest floor.
The trees are lovingly freestyle stitched on my sewing machine by hand making each and every one unique. The background is 100% cotton fabric. The work is ready to hang on your wall, signed, given a number and a certificate.
Each work is unique. I do not use a computerized sewing machine.
I donate $2 for every tree stitched and sold to Landcare Australia. Green trees and button grass By Cindy Watkins
