The focal point for this work came from a stroll through the Arboretum in Seattle. The teal background texture was built up from individual photographs of stone and glacial water, superimposed with textures, while the brown foreground was created from shots of stone, bark, pine cones, and needles — as if the essence of that color. The superimposition of those textures with the tree as the go-between has a batik effect that pleases me.
