Sunshine

There's no shining sun outside my window ... out there it's cold, windy, and raining. The only sunshine to be found is in my field of prairie flowers.
This is the second to last of the twenty-five panels to get its detail layer of blossoms, leaves, etc. Just one more to go and this step is finally finished. The next part of the finishing process is to lay out the two rows down the right side to give those 10 panels the highlights and blending with the pastels, markers, and paint.

This panel was the last chance to hide Elvis's image among foliage. The last one yet to be worked is more or less a haze of flowers ... this picture would be too obvious there.
Well, back to work so we can get out of this summer cottage that is not meant to be occupied this late in the season.

Almost there! I just love how you hide Elvis in your work- your own special touch. Very unique! It's beautiful in photos- I can only imagine how pretty it is in person.

Definetly sunshine in your work...it is so beautiful. Even though it is rainy and windy outside what a wonderful outlook while you are doing your work.

I love this view over your machine and glow on the work.

Saw a box of Elvis Christmas cards on display at the grocery store yesterday and thought of you immediately. Shall I grab them up?

The view through the window is still beautiful and the light falling on your work really does look like sunshine. Hope you have a good journey home and time to finish your mammoth project comfortably. Everyone will be just stunned by it.

That truly is a beautiful picture. This has been such a nasty cold October; bad luck for you, but the project looks wonderful.

I do love Elvis and I'm glad you have used his image in this.

Nellie, this piece is truly remarkable! You will be making so many people happy with it...
Can't believe you are still at the lake. It is so moody and melancholy there at this time of year, but that has its own beauty, too.

Love seeing your Juki at work, looking out over the water. You rock, lady!
