Sometimes November nights bring dramatic storms, lighting trees still filled with dying leaves. Trees are potent symbols of cycles of life and death and of reaching to the sky while sending roots deep into the darkness. November of 2016 brought much of these kinds of conflict and drama to our lives. The weaving draws from the Saltillo style. It is woven of handspun, mostly churro wool, with a variety of natural dyed and undyed colors including shades of dark brown in the background and wine colors, greys, blue, green, white, and gold included in its design. It was woven by Lisa Trujillo who is a spinner and weaver with more than thirty years of weaving in the Chimayo and Rio Grande tradition, Lisa has won many awards at Spanish Market. It measures approximately 48 by72 inches.
