Playing in the Trees is actually the name of the workshop by Susan, not something I dreamt up but our group definitely was playing with the trees. The next decision was background, I didn't get mine chosen and prepped as I wanted some input from Susan. This was my second choice.
This is a photo I took in Bryce Canyon in April 2008 that was my inspiration.
Back in the class room about twenty minutes before leaving trees are getting more boughs.
Here is where I left it for the day, I need to add some more to the snow, if you take another look at my inspiration photo you can see some blue tones in the snow and different colours of white. I'll work on that over the next while at home, then quilt it. Next step will be adding the trees and finer branches. I decided not to have any of the evergreens or wall from the outlook in my piece.
