The Art of Christine Earhart

THE OAK TREE

The live oak tree is protected in Pasadena, California.  This is my tribute to the mighty oak.  The background was machine quilted with 3/4″ horizontal lines.  I then machine washed and dried the piece which left the background a little wavy due to the cotton batting shrinking more than the top and bottom cotton fabrics.  I painted cheese cloth which was then twisted to make the trunk and branches and sewn in place.  The leaves are made up of 1/2″ pieces of yarn that had been felted into the background then machine quilted.  43″ x 49″
