Coneflowers like these ones grow in one of my flowerbeds under a big oak tree. The flowers and leaves were made from fabrics I hand painted in a class with Phil Beaver. Each petal and each leave were carefully fussy cut making every one unique, just like in nature. The tree trunk is a textured batik. This fabric was manipulated by hand and machine to make it appear as corrugated bark.
