This design comes from one of my photographs of the beautifully textured trunk of the Queensland Bottle Tree.

Shadows cast from the mid morning sun, created the lines and curves from the branches.

The Queensland bottle tree is an iconic tree as it is indigenous to Queensland. It grows virtually anywhere, from stony outcrops to rich alluvial soil. It definitely epitomises the saying “Grow where you are planted”

I chose these wonderful complementary colours as the design reminded me of the colours of a swirling nebula in space, and hence the name.
