Art of the Month: April

I'm happy to share my first art for art's sake piece that I've finished in quite a while.  I wanted to play with lots of stitching, beads, embroidery and the rough edge applique that I've been using for a while now.

The idea for this came to me in an unusual way.  I saw it in a trance journey and the name just popped into my head.  As an exercise in following through I sketched and cut and stitched and here is the result.  It feels good to have it done and to have finished it in less than a year (I didn't work on it exclusively of course but under a year is a great pace for creative work at this point)

It's beautiful and looks like it took a lot of work. It reminds me of a pansy flower with the rich darks and bright light areas.
