Summer scene in CQ
This idea started out with one element; the lone tree. I had no idea what the tree might look like or what else would be included. The mountain to the left looks a little like Mount Garfield, a natural landmark to the north east of our town. As I worked on the tree, it started to resembled a cedar tree (in my mind, anyway), which we have a lot of up in the higher desert areas around us.
Here's a little silk ribbon embroidery rose bush.
And a snowy owl which I think will get a (very careful) wash of brown paint to make him a more suitable color for this area.
