Dancin' Dogwood

My original creation began as a portrait of my son playing his guitar...however... upon seeing this dogwood fabric...I envisioned its tree bark with numerous blossoms moving all around, distant "musical hills" and a musical symbol replacing smaller trees.
To walk through the woods and hear nature's music...whether it be the stream, birds, or leaves and flowers swaying in the wind is truly magnificent to me, "especially when the trees are alive and dancing"!
Cotton fabric, batting and thread, Misty Fuse, organza, silk, lame, tulle, metallic mesh.
Collage pieced, curved pieced, raw edge applique (with "fingernail fraying"), machine quilted, hand beaded and embellished with a found electrical wire!
And what I tried new this time?...very little quilting for me!
