Blazing Sumac Detail

Every fall, the shrubby sumac bush and the larger Staghorn sumac trees light up the arid Okanagan hillsides with blazing reds, oranges and yellows. As the leaves fall, they curl and twist into rust and brown remnants. A gift of some plum and burgundy batik scraps offered me the perfect foil for these blazing leaves.
Techniques: raw-edge appliqué, thread painting, hand-painting, collage piecing
