So Velma Bolyard has a blog and she posts pictures of things she is working on like contact printing on paper and book binding, and she posts pictures of what her life looks like. Part of her life is this barn, which she photographs so lyrically that I felt compelled to do something with her photos. This is the second of my efforts. Below is my third, which is the same image as the first one I did except I have lost the first one somewhere in my room. This probably means it is time for a more thorough cleaning than I have accomplished for a while.
The hook and the weathering were speaking to me!

There are more coming – you must tell me which one you need for payment for all the inspiration!
These are extraordinary beyond words … incredibly evocative stitches and colors … a tribute-in-kind to a fellow artist … I can’t thank you enough for sharing this
They are so beautiful – the stitching is the perfect way to capture wood grain.
