musings on art, walks with the dog, life as it happens
looks like a candelabra in the center with the light just pouring out the sides.
Yes Deanna, my thought too!
it is in fact a tree; in this part of the Netherlands there are many commercial fruitgrowers and they prune and shape the trees according to their needs; the tree-of-life motif is/has been a recurring theme in my work and it comes in many shapes and forms, this espalier-type is one example.And it does indeed resemble candelabra, especially here with the light shining thru.
This photo works so well with the tree paintings of the following post... I can definitely see the theme... The photo and tree paintings got me thinking -- there's something tree-like about a quilt's back in the way that all that stitchery is normally not revealed - reminding me of the way trees' filigrees (roots) are mostly hidden... very cool!
exactly, the stitching on the back, which is 'normally' hidden (maybe that's why I like it so much) helps remind me of All the hidden connections, (in)visible, (un)known connections that feed us, feed the plants etc.
beautiful Back. a story in itself, in all the patterns, marks, glyphs
Grace: most times I forget to take a photo when I notice something like this, but not this time.
