Tree Spirit Felt Finished!
I really enjoyed working on this art felt and beading it was great too. (Helmut made lots of fires to keep me warm while working!) I like it very much because the tree spirit is looking at me and reminding me to remember the trees! It was inspired by Friedensreich Hundertwasser's paintings, which I really like and find visually fascinating. I read a couple books about his philosophy of living with trees and having nature integrated into modern living spaces and I have to agree with him.....it is a very important fact of life to live in harmony with the trees on this planet!
So I will dedicate this artwork to my Dad, Jim Herberger, who plants at least 50 trees every year! Thanks Pops!
