Birch bark

birch barkWe were cutting wood yesterday – a beautiful old birch which the power company cut down this spring.  Even though it died a year or so ago, it had stood like a sentinel at the end of the driveway, thick and tall and stark white against the darker foliage and the sky.  I loved that tree though I never actually photographed it.  It was down before I realized it was being cut and it made me sad.

I love the patterns of birch bark.  I’ve taken many photos as studies for some of my fabric work, but I was surprised today by the patterns I saw in one of the logs.  To me it looks like clouds, or water marks, or elegant moire fabric.
