How “Yarn Bomb Tree” Came To Be

30 Jul

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.

Enjoy!

Last week, I posted about Judy’s ventures with her new Sumi brush. Remember this photo?

After the weekend, I came back to her studio to find the painting (pictured above) had been transformed into this complete painting:

Wow!¬†I think the geometric shapes and bird pattern are pretty amazing, especially on top of her loose layers of Sumi brushstrokes and collage. And, while birds are well-loved classic subjects found in Judy’s work, there’s something extra fresh about these. I can’t put my finger on it, but whatever it is, it’s good. What do you think? Take a closer look…
