A Stitched Painting

Remember that burlap canvas that I painted?  I posted it on Monday when I blogged about what was on my desk.  This is it:

And this is what I did to it:

I added some simple embroidery stitches to create some more visual texture.  I love the way the embroidery transforms such a simple little painting into something really beautiful and special.

I'm heading to a crop tonight with my favorite Manhattan Scrapbookers.  Looking forward to it, but I always have trouble packing.  I can't quite decide what I want to work on.  What's portable?  What do I need to get that done?  And since I print photos as I go, it's so impossible to go without a printer.  But I'm going to enjoy it!  It will be my last crop for a while as I'm about to head into rehearsal for a brand new show!  Time always seems to evaporate when I'm in rehearsal.

Have a stellar weekend!
