|Deep Summer Fields, 2011|
I love it! Adding the two rows of fences really gave this piece the right depth that the original photo had. And then yesterday, while battling some serious spring allergies, I completed this one. I'm calling this one by our province's name. It's so 'green & gold' (our flag colors).
It's based on this very first prairie photo I took after moving back to Saskatoon 4 years ago. Here it is on a My Sweet Prairie postcard.
Here's some detail of this little blueish-purple flowers in the foreground. I used variegated threads and it just turned out SO pretty!! It really suggests the original scene perfectly.
I also lucked out while garage sale-ing this weekend. I found matting, stretcher bars, and even a double hinged door that folds in half and is quite tall. I plan to stain the wood with white and use it as a display board for my art at the end of the month. (White stain? Grey paint? Black cloth? hmmm... can't decide).
See you tomorrow!
