Finished It Friday : )

Wow.  Do I ever feel like I've accomplished things this week.  I feel ahead of the game regarding deadlines (knock on wood!).  I did not love the 'Fields of Gold' that I made for a commission, so I started up another simple autumn scene.  The colors are much more subtle, based on a photo I took on the way to Beaver Creek.

It was the end of summer and there were Prairie Coneflowers growing by the roadside.  I stayed up all night adding the hand stitching to it.  I loved every stitch.


It looks quite stunning in the frame I have at home.  That was the problem with the other one.  I didn't love the color scheme.  This one was an after-thought and I really love it.  It makes me happy.

I matted all my other work and dropped it all off to be framed.  (!!!)  We picked some really pretty frames!  I can't wait to see them all once they are back.  Before I headed out, I was sure to take high res photos of each one.  SO... since you told me this is not boring, here they all are once again.  : )

Monica, your work is AMAZING! I feel like I am at an art gallery every time I visit your blog. I really like Fields at Floral Road 2. Looking at it makes want to jump over the fence, run across the field and climb on top of the hill on the far left. Simply beautiful!
