Everything in this piece is hand-painted and then appliqued together using invisible thread and a small zigzag stitch. I used Setacolor fabric paints and Tsukineko inks. It is constructed in many segments. The main trees were made individually by painting onto prepared for dyeing fabric and then embellishing with white puff paint, cut out and appliqued to the body of the piece. All of the snow in the foreground is painted with puff paint.
I used various photographs of our cabin on Rock Creek, Montana, as references.
