This past weekend I was blessed to spend a bit of time with two relatives that were visiting from another state. The night before I was set to have lunch with them and some of our extended family I realized that I would like to create a small gift for them to take back home from their visit. Suddenly, an idea began to form in my mind and I created this.
The art piece is on a small canvas and the artwork is a combination of embroidery and sketching with acrylic pencils and a black ink pen. I am pleased with how it turned out, but I was even more pleased by the smiles on my relatives' faces when I gave it to them.
One of the aspects that I most enjoyed about making this was the exploration of combining stitching directly on canvas as well as other elements, such as acrylic pencils.
How have you been creative lately?
