I had the most vivid roses in the early spring and I shot a great photo of them in multi color full blossom.
My friends said “Paint them!” and one special friend wanted me to paint it on a cross stitch canvas for her to interpret in stitch. The painting is available at Seidman Gallery framed in white on white and the cross stitch is now on the back of my jacket. Amazing how one beautiful rose begets another.
Below, recent paintings at Seidman Gallery, the cross stitch canvas painted and then stitched and sewn on my jacket, modeled by me.
I love when something starts out and then gets a little help from friends and becomes so much more.
