Catkin Study

catkin.5sm Catkin Study                                                       Copyright                                                                                           In keeping with my pussy willow theme, I thought I would concentrate on their most distinctive element, the catkin. Before male catkins come into full flower, they are covered in fine greyish ‘fur’, one of the earliest signs of spring. Chinese legend says that the young green shoots sprouting through the puffy white buds signify prosperity. I am only about half way through this single catkin, still debating whether or not to add color. A lot more dimension needs to be added to this 20″x20″ piece, but eventually I hope that you will feel as if you can reach out and touch it!
