Sunday, November 20

If I was very clever. . .



I've no great desire to replicate Nature's beauty
in paints or pastels


or sculpt organic forms with pottery and woodcarving


but if I was very clever (which alas I'm not)


I'd just LOVE to find a way with beadwork
and gossamer thread



to recreate these exquisitely be-decked dewdrop webs. . .

Amazing -somebody was up bright and early !

Autumn Mist said...

I know, aren't they stunning? There are some things in nature that humans will never be able to replicate - the feel of a tulip petal, for instance. We're good, but we're not that good!

Hope you do find a way to replicate how it looks with beads and thread....it would be stunning!

Nature can be so delicate...xx

Wow, Elaine did you take all these delicate photos? They are so beautiful. I wonder if someone clever can replicate those patterns with beads and thread. That would be a sight.♥
Love to Kit♥

What beautiful pictures and how delicate those webs are...I always feel so guilty when I am dusting corners if I dust one away!

Stunning photos Elaine...it always amazes me how spiders know how to weave such intricate webs without seeing them from above.

Fantastic photos. Perhaps that is what makes them even more special, the fact that we can't replicate and build them ourselves ... M x

I don't like November. Not. One. Bit............ but when I saw this, I changed my mind. How beautiful, Elaine. How utterly, utterly beautiful.

I am forever amazed at Mother Nature, she gives us such beautiful gifts. But to try and replicate any of her colors is almost impossible I have found.
