Work in Progress (pass the mustard?)

I finished this one up.  It was rectangular, but do you think I have a frame to fit?  no.  It's a teeny edge shy of a 5x7" mat.  SO, 5x5" it is.  I have heard that square art has a more intimate feel than rectangular art.  I will make this one again though, because it was so enjoyable, and because I like the feel of the open horizon being longer.


If I'm wrong, I'll be corrected (go for it), but I'm pretty sure these are Mustard flowers.  Here's the original photo I took below.  My version is a little brighter, and simpler by intention.  I love the clean look of it so very much.  It has a very delicate feel.  It was a beautiful scene to begin with.  I loved how the background blended.


I will have this one for sale at my Studio Warming on Saturday.  Most of the art I have right now is small - both threadpaintings and chunkier yarn embroideries.  I'll also have some postcards, snow globes, and art-print greeting cards too.  Please stop by if you are looking to do some holiday gift shopping.  I'll likely deactivate my Etsy shop items for the weekend as I have the cards for sale here.

p.s.  this little sweetie needs a name

Very pretty! Simplified is good. I love the horizon line and that the flowers go above it. Did you have to lie down for that shot, lol?
I get frustrated because I can't get up and Dow for those shots.

I usually do get down on the ground, yes! :) Or at least squat a bit. These were up past my elbows so it wasn't too difficult. ;)
