japanese umbrella pine
16.5" x 11.5"
Painted completely within Inkscape - April, 2019 - revised March, 2020
Printed on woven fabric
We own and care for a Japanese Umbrella Pine, that has been planted for about 5 years and is now about 15 ft. tall.
Each fall I prune it to accentuate the leaves at the end and their pattern - It's almost like a living sculpture.
In March, 2020 we opted to revise this into a black, grey, and white print.
We overhauled the print and also created a more textured background - which showcases beautifully on the canvas fabric.
May, 2020, JUP received an honorary award in a Botanical exhibit from Light Space Time.
