How “Yarn Bomb Tree” Came To Be

This painting Yarn Bomb Tree was inspired by the trees in Austin who have been lovingly covered in colorful, knitted yarn. These photos illustrate the transformation of this particular painting with process shots. The final result is found at the bottom of this post, or on Judy’s website.

    Back in my Gayla Sue days, we put contact paper on trees — patterns of brick, etc. It got her through art school, 40 years ago.

    Judy – this collaged painting is simply beautiful! It holds everything I love: birds, owls, trees, leaves, rich color, collaged elements and textiles in the element of yarn. I love that it captures the public art movement too.
