Naturally Beautiful

I am delighted when I find natural objects used as inspiration for design. Jon Eric Riis is a contemporary fiber artist from Atlanta Georgia who was certainly naturally inspired for these tapestries. Aren't they just marvelous?

I thought I would share some photos I took this weekend because when I saw these tapestries I was taken back to what I had actually captured with my camera.

A lone lost feather....

A beautiful butterfly....

And even though I didn't take any pics of caterpillars -- the coloring in the tapestry reminded me of this tree with something growing on the trunk and these clusters of mushrooms that were growing at the base of a tree.
Naturally Beautiful I think.
