I am so happy with it! It's heavily thread painted by machine, and then all the flowers were hand stitched. If you click on it to look closer, you'll see blues, yellows, periwinkles, and white. The big yellow and whites were the gigantic dandelions in the original photo. Their stalks had red running through them. There are lots of big french knots, medium ones, and even teeny ones in the distance. Here's some detail of my work.

I am so darn excited that I took the challenge of trying this one out. I've had my eye on that original photo I took a year ago. It just worked out so well. I have the perfect sage green matting and white frame. It really sings! I just have one problem. I simply cannot come up with a meaningful name for this one. Want to help?
Here's the story: it's a hard and weathered post wrapped tightly in barbed wire. The flowers are unaffected by that boundary. They are growing abundantly - all gorgeous and loose and full of diversity too. The have absolutely no order to them. I think of High Contrast, but that's not pretty enough of a name. Here is the original photo set in high contrast to bring out the variety colors you might not notice at first glance.
Any suggestions? I would love help with this.
