The sidewalk grate is raw silk in shades of copper, taupe, and brown. The tree shadow is black and green raw silk, stipple quilted to add definition.
The background is hand-dyed cotton in shades of gray. The tree trunk is marbled and hand-dyed cotton, with double batting and topstitching to give it texture.
The border is raw silk in ecru, gallery wrapped on a stretched canvas frame.
