Spring Greens

I was up at 5 am!  I guess I went to bed way too early.  The house was quiet and I had all that quiet to myself.  I spent 2 hrs stitching in the dandelions and some extra grasses & stalks.  Another finish!

Spring Greens, 2012

Spring Greens (full of dandelions) was based on a photo I took two summers ago - the summer when every field was flooded.  The browns in the background are stubble & dirt fields.  The algae-covered water in the foreground is a flooded ditch by the road.  This piece measures about 7x9".  I personally love this one.  There's just something about the colors that I love so much.  : )

I can't believe you did that at 5AM! I'd be lolling about moaning and complaining about being up so early.
Your pieces do call out for closer scrutiny. The detail is beautiful!
