Hemlock Stems in Autumn

Walking today nearby I came across these hemlock stems, what fantastic structures especially lit by the sunshine. Last year I sketched out a design with a hemlock seed-head and it's waiting to be made into a felt piece, although getting the detail of the lines will be a challenge, I think that's why I haven't made it yet!

My artist friend Tammy has just finished a linocut reduction of hemlock, which involves cutting away more of the design from the lino with each colour printed, I think the effect is lovely. She and I try to keep each other sane and meet up as often as we can for mutual support, coffee and chattering, check out her beautiful prints and paintings at her website.
