Smoke Tree

I have enjoyed the smoke tree (Cotinus obovatus) for years, but it wasn’t until I spotted a magnificent specimen on Avenue Outremont that I grasped its potential for making art.

The feathery blooms and purple, orange, gold and red leaves lend themselves to being pressed, scanned and replicated in giant, 3-D format.  The resulting images can then be arranged in a variety of shapes, colours and patterns.
