Colors of Nature

I'm only sharing this one pic today, but I really think it captures alot. I've been working with this simple Shibori pattern and after the eclipse I realize why this simple beautiful resist is so evocative - it looks just like the partial solar eclipse!

This is a photo from a Natural Dye workshop held at the UC Botanical Garden in Berkeley, one of my most favorite places. The silk scarf is dyed with eucalyptus leaves with a post-dip in an iron bath. The bright orange red is from madder root. Enjoy!
