Thanks to a close friend of mine I was introduced to a tree, that immediatly became my all time favourite tree. Why is very obvious.
The Rainbow tree is something that is totally denied to us Austrians, our clima just doesn't allow it. It's mostly planted in tropical gardens and parks, due to its show-effect. Yes, this tree is a stunner, and yes, walking in a forest of Rainbow trees is what I am going to use to circle my daydreams around while I am walking those wet, cold and grey streets of Vienna.
The axis of a rainbow along with it's colours is a neverending element of inspiration, not only for me as dyeing artist. Just take a look at what Jimmy Hendrix did with this theme.
Axis Bold as Love
....My red is so confident he flashes trophies of war
And ribbons of euphoria.
Orange is young, full of daring but very unsteady for the first go 'round.
My yellow in this case is no so mellow.
In fact I'm trying to say it's frightened like me.
And all of these emotions of mine keep holding me
From giving my life to a rainbow like you.
But I'm a yeah, I'm bold as love,
