A Friday Finish!

Whew - it's done!  Commission complete.  This is the view from the Meota Highway, loooking across Jackfish Lake, Saskatchewan.


I just sent a photo to the woman who will be the new owner to see what she thinks.  She lives at this lake, so it's a personal piece for her.  It's quite big - will be in a 14x14" frame.  Much of the surface is done with sewing thread by hand.  All the pale stitches in the fields are hand work, and of course the flowers, grasses & fence wires in the foreground are as well.


s usual... I don't have a title yet.  'From Old Meota Road' ... that has a certain ring to it.  This new threadpainting will go the framing studio next week.  Hooray!  It sure feels good to get things done. : )

Just to make note - I'll be selling my wares at a local Christmas Art & Craft sale in Saskatoon on Saturday November 29th.  Keep posted and I'll share the details once I have them.

Have a great weekend friends,
