JANUARY: brown creeper, resurrection fern & phagalia moth

Dreams of warm scaly bark with treasures beneath have Brown Creeper rushing south from the freezing boreal forest.  This tiny brown prospector travels light - a long, curved beak as a pick and long, sharp claws as grapples.  She intends to explore as many tree trunks as possible, spiraling up from the bottom to the very top.  An expert at poking and prying, she is looking for a show of chitin and winged delectables.  The big bald cypress looks promising - scaly bark, leafy lichen and bowers of rain-wakened resurrection fern should make this an easy dig.  Sure enough, she strikes it rich with great occurrence of Winter flying moths!  She moves to the next tree with confidence, planning to excavate the big cypress again tomorrow. 

1 of 3 in the WINTER Collection from Seasons of a Cypress - a series of 12 connected images. 9 images are currently complete.

The original images were created with Mississippi mud and plants and scanned to permanently capture the fresh bright colors of berries, flower petals and leaves pushed into the paper.

color sources to create include: poke salad leaves, red hill dirt, bitterweed, white throated day flower & burned meadow grass

They are stand alone designs or can be arranged as one large cypress tree. The images are in seasonal collections, each month featuring a bird/plant/insect relationship.

9 x 9 digital print, mounted with acid-free glue on book binder’s board, then mounted flush on a handmade pine frame, with 1 in depth. Flush mount allows for side-by-side display, or for stand alone display on a bookshelf or table.
