Description

While taking walks during winter, I began taking photos of the intricate patterns of tree branches. I found a section of one photo that I was particularly attracted to and traced the branches in pencil abstractly onto watercolor paper. I have always loved the way the sun shines through the leaves in summer and in fall illuminating them. Using that as my inspiration, I painted with dyes and water to fill in the shapes like a piece of stained glass.

 

After creating this piece, I happened across the perfect word to describe this natural illuminated color. The word “komorebi” is an untranslatable Japanese word that is used to describe the effects of sunlight streaming through trees and their leaves.
