    A while ago, somewhere (I think), Terry mentioned an interest in iridescence in nature (or elsewhere?)…at any rate, since then I’ve come across a few images that made me immediately think of Terry’s costume design – both photos are from treehugger.com (lovely site – don’t let the crunchiness of the title fool you). I’m fascinated by color & texture and how it can be applied to textile art.

    Wondering if others have reference material as well…?

    I’ve attached the two photos that particularly caught my eye.

      Realized I had one more…this one I photographed – its Geum/Prairie Smoke I think it’s called.

      It just astonishes me. So amazing.

      I think the winged creatures have a corner market on color and texture, and I think some of the moths look like butterflies in sweaters. It’s like they’ve got on knitwear.

      The other thing that fascinates is transparency in nature – clear wings or petals.

      I can see all of these as source material for textile art or costume design too.
