This is a redo of Autumn Blonde that was in the Stitch article. This one is much smaller than the original commission but has a sweet, purple moody sky.

I've noticed that since settling into my 'she-cave', I have included purple in much of my art. It must be the lilac walls. In fact, I noticed that most art I have bought from others in the past has purple in it. Go figure. It's never been my favourite colour, even as a child.
I'm not actually sure if that last one is done. I need to leave it a while and then come back to it. I have lots to produce in March between commissions and Gardenscape's annual art show. Yes indeed, the big garden show will be here before you know it! I hear that if you are a fan of orchids, you will not be disappointed.
I hope that brightened you day!
