Summer Symphonies

Hello again,

And I know it has been a while since I posted but thank you for being so patient. Life often throws us things that we are not prepared for! I have been working through it!

The following photos are pieces that are being donated to the Halton Youth Symphony Orchestra for silent auction. It is always a fun time but a lot of work just the same. Lots of work on the set up!

I hope you enjoy ...these are watercolour with wool rovings - hand and machine stitch!

They are 24" x 24" mounted on stretcher bars and canvas.
Wishing you the very best, Barbara

Lovely to see you back creating again Barbara and this piece is so very typical of you and your creativity using water colours, wool rovings and stitching - It is really beautiful.
I hope you are doing really well!
Hugs from Suzy
