Sunny Heart



This piece is called Sunny Heart and it was one of my favorite pieces. Luckily for me it was also a favorite of a lovely lady from New Jersey(my home state) Today was my second day working at Valley Artisans Market and this was my first sale of the day. I love to hand embroider hearts. Just love them(maybe it's the valentine thing) but this piece was just made for the frame I framed it in. I'm not sure if you can see the detail in the photograph but the frame is rustic and it suited the orange watercolor and the stitchery just wonderfully. I never thought too much about framing in the past but I'm finding it wonderful searching for different frames and framing techniques for different pieces. I'm glad someone else saw the specialness of the combination.

What a wonderful experience to be in VAM. I am among such talented artists I could just gush for hours. Every time I go there I see some extraordinary work of art that just leaves me in awe. Today it was a gourd with a dollhouse in it made by Chung-Ah Park. Such detail and precision and beauty in one little gourd. Chung is also a potter and her pottery is to die for also. Symbolism and beauty combine to make beautiful pieces of art. Just wonderful.


Now it is time for me to take leave of the blog so I can read some of my bloggy friends blogs and then get back to embroidering. Blessings to you and if you are anywhere near Cambridge please go to Valley Artisans Market and see that extraordinary gourd! Also, my friend Cheryl(The Lady's Got Glass) is having her opening tomorrow afternoon at Desolation Road so if you are in the neighborhood please stop by and support Cheryl and her beautiful glass work.

The frame is as beautiful as the embroidery! I think framing our small pieces enhances their beauty and makes them more "sellable" -- and you certainly did an exquisite job with this one. Congrats on the sale!
