Eagle's View of Winter Mountains, 2006

Based on an aerial photograph taken in 2001 flying over the foothills of the Alaskan Range southeast of Anchorage, this 24 x 30 inch, hand stitched, two-sided, silk embroidery features very subtle dye work done to the silk threads and a technique we use to represent diminishing distance, wherein the threads detailing the furthest point in the landscape are not full silk threads, but rather, have been sewn with 1/24 strands of unwound silk. The piece took 2-1/2 years to complete. The effect of the stitching in this image gives the appearance of Chinese brush-painting.
Framed 27 5/8 x 35 7/8 inches.
