Arbutus Basket


No, it is not a painting; just a small diversion.

The inner bark of Arbutus menziesii
is a beautiful bright green, supple when fresh and peels in long strips
perfect for a great little basket!

It is beginning to dry and will turn red-brown.

approx. 1.75 x 1.75 inches

about the artist

White Salmon, Washington, United States
I have always enjoyed making things - learning to use the tools and properties/qualities of materials. My favorite place to renew is in a Forest, Alpine Meadow, or on a Lake; all are wonderful templates for living simply and elegantly! I started drawing at age 5 and worked in several media, eventually taking a minor in Fine Art along with my Science degrees. Later studies in Fiber, Surface Design, Book Arts and Painting support my work today. I continue to study painting through workshops and perseverance at my easel. I work on location and sometimes in the studio.
