Painted lady


Over the years I have painted, photographed and stitched villas. Mostly in NZ.

This one is now my daughters. I love the look of paint and stitchery and often use it in my work.

This is just muslin and acrylics.

Embroidery mostly French knots. It makes an effective dimensional picture to frame without glass.

How wonderful to combine watercolors AND stitchery! The result is beautiful! I do watercolors, but never in a million years would I have ever thought to transfer it to fabric and then add stitchery! Leave it to you, Lilla!

Take care in all that rain!!! We had another dusting of snow today... brrrr
