The Art of Christine Earhart


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″
