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.

There are times when I get up and get started in the studio with no messing around and other times there is lots of messing around. Today I took a bike ride with my new Canon EOS M camera to get juiced up for a day in the studio and I loved it! I want to start every day like this! Here are the photos:
Austin is a beautiful, magical place. An oasis of a city that has been planned to blend its blossoming municipal structure with central Texas’s natural beauty.
On any given day, you can get lost on winding nature trails and gaze at skyscraper silhouettes on the horizon. You can stop by Lady Bird Lake and feed the swans. Paint your home purple, put a garden in your backyard, or perhaps the front? Anything’s possible here, and nature is cherished.
Like most Austin residents, I love living in this city. There is a special essence felt here, and Judy has been capturing it through photography for awhile now. Over the past year or so, she’s been combing these images to create surreal photo-collages of all things wonderful about this place.
Here is her latest “Barton Springs” (aka my favorite place):
